Thinking about writing

Thinking about writing and why I have such a hard time sitting down and getting it done. I procrastinate daily, hourly. Even though I am definitely wanting to get words out. I have stuff to say. But all other work seems more important than this writing work. It’s not that I don’t enjoy writing. I do enjoy it (especially in Scrivener on the iPad, if truth be told). It excites me to write. There’s a sense of mystery, wondering where this will go. But I just don’t do it.

Here I am, again. Re-committing to the practice of writing. I will write at least three days a week. At this point, it doesn’t matter what I write, but just that I do it.

I’m going to publish, too. makes it easy. But where? I have two choices currently. I think I’ll stick with the Dropbox/A Social Folder choice. I want @agilelisa to be more professional, more about the official words. Maybe I’ll get there someday.

Thinking about writing is not as useful as actually writing. In the same way, thinking about a project is not as valuable as actually doing the work of a project. This is a lesson that I’ve learned over and over. I’ve been biased on the thinking/worrying side, and I want to be biased toward action instead.
