Here’s a secret that’s not really a secret: It’s my birthday tomorrow. I pulled the info down from my Facebook page, not because I don’t want people to know, exactly, but because I feel not ready for it, like there were things I wanted to accomplish that I haven’t yet. Because when I think “accomplishment,” I think of finished projects, and I have finished very little this year. I still go to the same job everyday, I haven’t made more money or organized my life in any great way or become famous.
But then I think…those aren’t the things that I vowed to do. I did say I would spend more effort learning about how to put more projects out into the universe. But mostly, I promised I would write, And, you know what? I’ve done that—with some ebbs and flows, but with consistency. Basically, my form of writing procrastination is writing something that I’m not “supposed” to be writing. I fall behind on my writing because I’m writing! For a writer, that’s not that terrible.
Although they aren’t yet “coming soon to a theater near you,” I have several projects that I’m pretty darn excited about, so brace yourself for a multi-part series about WHAT I’M WRITING.
