Gearing up for the A to Z Blogging Challenge

Standard

So as the A to Z Blogging Challenge barrels toward us, I’ve been tidying up odds and ends with one of those to-do lists that’s about 75% aspirational. Are the to-dos to-done?

Nobody’s a perfect list-crosser-offer. What’s that, hypothetical reader? You always finish all of the to-dos on your list?

Well, that’s easy for you, isn’t it, given your hypothetical state, I would think.

Here’s the thing about A to Z. It doesn’t have to be your whole life, and it it doesn’t have to take up all of your time. But you do tend to find yourself telling yourself you’re just going to visit ONE MORE BLOG.

Or put off editing by writing one. Not that I’d ever do that. Ever.

What’s that, hypothetical reader? Frequently?

At least it’s on the list. Speaking of, it’s back to it.

Gearing Up to Gear Up

Standard

OK, I admit it. My brain hasn’t entirely returned from its vacation, and I’m pretty sure it’s off frolicking somewhere without me. Maybe it’s somewhere warmer than here, though probably not somewhere sunnier. It’s very sunny today. It looks as though the sky is cheerful about the low temperature, like it’s saying “Whatcha gonna do?” with a big sky-ly shrug.

Whatcha gonna do indeed.

I’d like to be zooming through my tasks, transformed into an efficiency robot, with every second well-utilized. Instead, I am meandery. Wednesday is no day for meandery.

I have at least gotten a longer list going, and selected some of the tasks I can get done today, so that, I suppose, is a start. I’ve even crossed a couple of them off. In fact, I’m doing one right now.

Perhaps there is a bit of NaNoWriMo fatigue still lingering, there’s nothing quite like a NaNo push. Or maybe I’m simply an excellent procrastinator (I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but I’m very good). But I suppose it doesn’t matter what it is.

The fact remains that the days off have come and gone, and now it’s back to business. Ladies and gentlemen, start your productivity engines.
