This is the first entry I’m making on technically the next day, whoops. I had a writing challenge for which I’d signed up that was due at 1:29am today, January 31st, or 11:59pm EST. And, like an idiot, I let it go too long before working on it in earnest, even though I had a full eight days to do it.
The sad part is I had a decent idea of my plot and what I wanted to write after my trip to St. John’s with my cousin Terry last Sunday. I just didn’t work on it really until a day or two ago, and then most of today. If I’d done it like I talked about (and should have), namely having a draft ready for Wednesday or thereabouts for Terry to review for me, I’d have been fine, but nope. I put the pro in procrastination.
And I know it too, that’s the frustrating part. Ugh. I know I shouldn’t beat myself up too much but I saw this coming and didn’t do anything about it. Heck, I spent a good chunk of last night and this afternoon playing Diablo III, which was fun but didn’t help one bit with my writing.
Anyway, chalk it up to some things never change and I suck at getting things done in time I suppose. I need to fix it but it’s too late now for this one. At least I got something submitted, though I barely reviewed it myself let along had someone beta it for me, so I know it’s horrible. Oh well.
