The Reverb 10 is an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next.” First thing to do is use the prompts that the Reverb 10 website dictates. There are prompts for each day of December 2010. This is my post for December 2, 2010!
What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it?
This one is easy! And short! I have an awful habit of staying up late, at least until 2am every night, to watch (brace yourselves) REALITY TV!!!
How many of you thought I was going to say porn?
This may not seem as a big deal but it hinders me so. This is my pattern.
(Sujeiry talking to herself in an encouraging tone.) “I’m going to fall asleep before midnight tonight so I can get up before 8am and write before work!”
(Sujeiry loosing her conviction.) “Maybe I can just watch one episodes of The Bad Girls Club.”
Two Bad Girls Club episodes and one Gauntlet challenge later.
(Sujeiry succumbing to her addiction.) “Ok, so I’ll only get 5 hours of sleep. I’ll still get up! I promise!”
8am alarm rings. Snooze. 8:15am alarm rings. Snooze. 9am alarm rings. Snooze.
Snooze. Snooze. Snooze.
10am alarm rings. Sujeiry’s eye pop open.
(Sujeiry realizing she overslept and fucked up again.) “SHIIIIIIIIIIT!!!!”
And that, pepitas and pepitos, is what I do every day that doesn’t contribute to my writing.
But tonight it CHANGES!!! I promise 🙂
