On Procrastination

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]
I have had a rather extreme case of writer’s block for…oh, just about 12 years now. I kept journals as a teenager, rather religiously, or at least at certain points, religiously. They all seem to drop off at some point or another with a “talk to you tomorrow” and pick up a year or so later. Nevertheless, this is definitely the longest “drop off” at about 12+ years.

One of my problems with writing is the new (okay, not so new) age of the blog. As did everyone else, I’m sure, I always wrote in my journals with the thought that maybe someday someone would read it. Not just my mom or sister, but some famous publisher would find it (in my messy bedside drawer, obviously, makes complete sense) and just HAVE to publish my inner most teenage thoughts. We are all terribly narcissistic at 14, aren’t we? I know I wasn’t alone in this though, thinking that my teenage troubles were somehow unique and fascinating to more people than just myself. The problem today, however, is that if you choose to write a blog, which I have mulled over for nearly a decade, your words are likely to be read. Sure, I could jot down feelings and ideas in a journal, but in many ways, I am still very much that 14 year old narcissist. Don’t get me wrong (yes, I am aware I’m doing it now, talking to an imaginary person, but bear with me, Mr. Nobody), I know that there are millions of blogs falling under the self-indulgent, self-deprecating, self-aggrandizing, self-loathing and any other self-centred genre you can think of. Mine would just be another needle in the world’s largest haystack, but that has still somehow held me back from writing. As if, I want people to read my words, but I also don’t. As if, I know that the likelihood of going viral is approximately zero, which both encourages me to just do it and also discourages me from even bothering.

I am a procrastinator, through and through (and through and through and through), so that has been a huge part of it, but I have also felt myself drawn to writing more and more and more lately. It’s been missing from my life for so long, and yet, it was only recently that I started feeling an undeniable urge to get these thoughts down on paper (metaphorical paper; actual keyboard/computer screen). I’ve started to think in written form which is something I haven’t done in many years and something only a writer could relate to, but if you write, you will know what I mean. And yet, here we are, at 31, writing for basically the first time in over a decade.

We’ll see how this goes.

    more helpful than ever before.

  3. Hi would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working
    with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different
    internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.

    Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?

    Cheers, I appreciate it!

  6. I’ve really noticed that repairing credit activity must be conducted with techniques. If not, you might find yourself destroying your ranking. In order to grow into success fixing your credit score you have to take care that from this time you pay any monthly fees promptly in advance of their slated date. It’s really significant because by not necessarily accomplishing that, all other steps that you will choose to adopt to improve your credit positioning will not be effective. Thanks for sharing your strategies.

  22. Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to understand so much approximately this, such as you wrote
    the guide in it or something. I think that you could do with
    some % to power the message home a little bit, but other than that, that
    is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I will
    certainly be back.

  23. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t
    know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing
    without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a
    blog post or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
