Hello. My name is Crystal, and I am a procrastinator.

30 01 2013

This morning, I found a notebook that I had used as a journal. It was during the time that I was writing in this notebook that I decided that I needed to write again. It took me a while to get started. I still have trouble making time to actually sit down and write something besides a journal. That is where the procrastinating comes in. It would be easy to get discouraged with my shortcomings. So instead, I have decided to post a list of accomplishments from the last year. And maybe set a few goals.

  • This will be the tenth blog post in the last year. Which is exactly 10 more than I have posted in the last 10 years.
  • I am close to finishing my 11th journal in just over a year. Prior to my decision to really start writing again, I was averaging one journal every year or year and a half.
  • I participated in NaNoWriMo and won. I wrote over 50,000 words in the month of November, and true to my procrastinating nature, I wrote most of those words on the last three days. (I had intended to blog about the experience, but yeah, I procrastinated.)
  • I don’t feel guilty calling myself a writer.

And now for a few goals.

  • Blog more often on both blogs.
  • Use the super cute planner I bought earlier this month to block out some time for writing.
  • Start rewriting the amazing novel I started in November.
  • Start planning a novel for this November.
  • Submit at least 5 pieces for possible publication this year.
