Just Another Struggling Writer

The lamentations of yet another person struggling to write a novel.

Monday Motivations; Lesson Learned

Hello friends and welcome to another multitudinous week of writing.

Friends, I’m not off to a great start today. I awoke at four am in a cold sweat, as one so often does when they realize they’d utterly forgotten to complete a time sensitive task. I leapt out of bed and ran to my computer only to learn that it was too late. The deadline was firm, and I missed it. The only thing left for me now is to cope with the consequences.

I did not manage to go back to sleep in case you were wondering.

Among the many anxious thoughts swirling about my brain and keeping me awake is the idea that I’ve bitten off more than I can chew, with the podcast, my new gym membership, writing, and school. Of course, the sample size is small, just one week, but the results are… not good. While I had the time to complete the missed assignment, I have to wonder if I have the mental capacity for everything I want to achieve. Because the truth is, embarrassing though it may be: I simply forgot about the task.

I’m not ready to admit defeat yet though. While it sounds (and feels) like I am raging against the inevitable, truth be told I indulged in a little hubris this week. I failed to utilize my time management habits and tools I typically make part of my routine, and as a result I procrastinated on an important task until it left my consciousness entirely. I was so excited about being busy with my new venture and my new morning routine that I forgot what being busy actually looks like in practice.

Suffice it to say, I’ve learned my lesson. And if I haven’t yet, I am sure to get the message when the actual consequences for missing the assignment come down.

So, motivation for this week: stay busy but remain focused.

Off I go!

About Me

Kerry Share’s love for writing started, as it so often does, as a love of reading at an early age. At age 11 she wrote her first short story, a Harry Potter knockoff of dubious quality, and her love for creative expression was born. Throughout her teen years she continued to foster that passion through derivative work, and at 23 she turned her eye to original fiction.

Now in her thirties, having taken a break from creative endeavors to cope with an ever changing life and landscape, she is determined to make her dream of a writing career reality.
