Is it Laziness? Or Energy Storage for the Future?

It’s hard to believe that just three weeks ago I completed my BFA in Creative Writing. After nearly two and a half years and thousands of pages written, I’ve accomplished my goal of completing a second Bachelors. I had established several grand goals for the weeks following the ceremony, such as reading through a stack…

Infographic – WIN!

OK, a reader of my blog sent this to me and I’m obsessed with this infographic. As someone who struggles with motivation [and religiously enjoys procrastination], I feel like I need to print this and display it prominently in my office:   Photo Credit: MBAOnline Of course, my love is for Full Sail University above…

Procrastination

I feel a tiny bit hypocritical this evening, as I am postponing doing my homework so that I can blog about procrastination. Especially considering my homework includes reading a textbook that preaches the value of planning, organizing, and prioritizing your workflow so that I/you/we can write a script in 21 days. Whoops.

October

Somehow, October launched a sneak attack on me. I swear, it was the first week of September just minutes ago. How is it the last day of September? I have at least 4-5 pieces I have been procrastinating on all month and two contests with a submission deadline of MIDNIGHT on October 1st — so…

Queen of Procrastination

Have you ever noticed that when you have a project due, you somehow find EVERY EXCUSE POSSIBLE to delay working on it? I am supposed to turn in the final draft of a feature length screenplay for class tonight – at midnight. So far this week, I’ve detailed my car [I’ve had it since September…
