Okay. Okay...I'm a Slacker!!!

Since the first of the year I've not been at all good about keeping up with my promise of two blog posts per week.  I have been particularly busy and I've been managing some health issues (which are improving steadily) but at the same time I also seem to have lost a bit of my discipline when it comes to daily writing. 

Prior to two months ago my habit was to wake up, make coffee and plop myself down in front my laptop to write for 30 minutes.  I did this pretty much daily from Monday to Friday.  When I kept up with it regularly I very easily churned out a blog post  nearly every two days.  Now not all of them were posted to Spinster Jane mind you, but they did at least come into being. 

The past few months I've woken up, made coffee and then taken a world wide web tour of new articles, Facebook memes and YouTube videos. You would think this daily cyber jaunt would give me plenty of material for writing, and you'd be right.  The issue isn't that there is not a plethora of topics to choose from, no the real reason is...

I've allowed myself to slack.  I've been engaging in multiple acts of slackishness.  I have jumped off the tower of discipline and into the pool of deep slack.  "I'll do it tomorrow," has become my writing catch phrase.

Sooooo, here we go folks.  I am taking the first step to dealing with the issue and that is to admit that I have a slack problem.  

I've no idea what the second step is, but you know something?  I think I'm going to worry about that tomorrow. 

Good night.
