Yeah... I printed out a procrastinator award and taped it above my desk.
That is from Hyperbole and a Half, which is absolutely amazing. Plus, 'X all the Y' is one of my favorite memes ever.
I made a list of all the things I'd like to get done tonight.
-Tidy the house
-Fold some laundry
-Meet my word count goal
-Write a blog post
-Stop wallowing in sleepiness
-Go to bed early
-Figure out what's wrong with my head
-Bring in stuff from the car
-Put it away or whatever
But I'm a procrastinator, so I know those first three won't get done tonight. Mostly because they aren't fun. I really hate doing anything that isn't fun. I'm optimistic about my word count. And obviously I accomplished the blog post. (To be fair, I often use blogging as a procrastination crutch.) I won't go to bed early. Probably after 2. Hopefully before 3. I've had a six day headache, but it's gone down a lot today. I probably shouldn't research this, but if I get distracted from writing, I will. There's a giant box of diapers and a few bags of non-perishable goods in my car. Al;l of those things are heavy or bulky and not fun. I actually wrote 'or whatever' on my list. In Charis speak, that translates to dropping it in the entryway and dealing with it tomorrow.
Those are the things I should do. Many of them feel like work tonight, and that makes my soul sad. Really, all I want to do tonight is curl up on the couch with the TV on and crochet a scarf. But that's not going to happen.
Last night, someone asked me, "How do you write a book?" On nights like tonight, you write it one begrudging word at a time.
