*Disclaimer to literary agents: The Lisas are the hardest working, unpaid authors in town. It’s a decent size town.
I love challenges. I like the whooshing sound they makes as they fly by, unmet. My apologies to the late, great Douglas Adams, upon whose actual quote (regarding deadlines) the above was based. I love deadlines too, and for the very same reason.
TOL (The Other Lisa), along with my other friend and assorted relatives have long put up with my almost daily, harebrained self-challenges. Recent quests on which I’ve embarked:
- write 1,000 words a day
- write 500 words a day
- write something, anything a day
- not gain weight
You can only imagine how successful I have been. So, in light of my life credo: keep your cleavage low and your expectations lower, I am undertaking a new strategy:
I know what you’re thinking, “What about federal holidays?” I’m still taking that up with my union. If you’re like me, I recommend a really good union (marriage or otherwise palimony-proof relationship).
What I’m trying to do is make one small change; take little baby steps to change my behavior that might help in my overall struggle to stop procrastinating, be more productive and possibly conserve water if I can find a morning bath buddy. Any takers?
