Yesterday I had my first class for a writing workshop I treated myself to, in hopes of upping my game and to get some deadlines in my life. Unlike most writers, who seem to complain that they hate the actual sitting down to write piece, I love writing. I love curling up with my laptop or a notebook and making something out of words. But, I am also a noted procrastinator. I need deadlines to give myself permission to make the writing a priority.
For the workshop, I’ll have assignments due every three weeks with the goal being to stretch myself outside my comfort zone, and possibly develop something for a class public reading in December. On top of that, I’ve added “blog more” to the to-do list, but with all this writing happening, I needed an idea or two about what to write.
I’m sure there will be days when the actual events of the day are more urgent, but now I’ll have a list to fall back on for a while. Keep your eyes peeled- I’m bringing the truth, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Tomorrow is Day One.
