Being Lazy

I need a project to work on.  I don’t want to start the work for my next assignment until I’ve finished reading all the modules for it.  So something else.  I just don’t know what.

I could start editing Italian Infatuation, but again I don’t want to do that until I’ve read the next couple of modules – they’re all about writing a novel.  For the same reason I don’t want to do anything more for Holiday. 

So what shall I do?  I think I’d like to work on something pretty small – a short story, or just a bit of writing, a scene or something. 

I feel like I’ve not done anything for a while.  I’ve been doing Fiction Friday (can’t wait for Friday!!) every week, but not much else.  When I’ve finished this blog I’ll do some writing, I’ll time 20 mins or so and just write.  See where that takes me.  Question is, should I just write whatever comes to me, or should I use a prompt?  Random word generator? Random sentence generator?

I need to pull myself together and start regularly writing.  I’ve told myself that I can only stay in this boring, low paid job, where I do very little, if I’m using the time well and writing.  If I’m not doing that, I need to find a better job.  Well, no, I need to be writing.  I’m wasting a chance of getting paid for writing while I’m supposed to be doing another job. 

Self pep talk over, I’m off to do some writing!
