You know, I hear often, questions about my writing…When am I going to finish something. Apparently, the masses are awaiting some great piece of literature amazement and yet I continue to fall short. I think my biggest issue is that of procrastination. I actually did try to write last night and I think that even when I shut the world out and turned the music on my brain was in overdrive. This is frequently the case. I can definitely blame the issues of my crazy gray matter or the issue of things like the Sims. Remember when I wrote a few months back about the movie, “Her?” I talked about this disconnect between humans and the connection of their electronics. I can say with certainty that I have fallen victim of having too many distractions and in part, electronic devices…namely my phone. It is far too easy to hear that annoying buzz of your phone when a new message comes through or having access to freecell while trying to do something far more important.
So I wonder what others do to block out the noise and focus. I think that if I scheduled writing time that I wouldn’t get very far because I don’t know that I can commit to it. Will I be one of those people that die with dreams unfulfilled because I couldn’t let the procrastination out and the inspiration in? Well, I did write a few more paragraphs, but is that really an accomplishment? Eventually, I suppose I will get back into the swing of things. It just seems that I can easily say that writers block is weighing heavily on me, which I am sure that to some degree that it is, but that doesn’t really hold up as an excuse I suppose. If I just stuck to some sort of consistently or routine I could figure it out, I’m almost certain. So…what do you all do when you need inspiration and how do you stay focused with all the stuff going on around you? Please share, because I could certainly use a hand right now. Thanks 🙂
