Excuses, Excuses.

It's been about a month now that I've been struggling with some pretty serious writer's block.  
For a while I thought it was the March blues.
I saw other bloggers writing about the same thing and I thought for sure as soon as we had some decent weather, I'd be right back in the swing of things.

But we've had some decent weather now and guess what...

I still have nothing to write about!!!

I've finally come to the conclusion that it's 100% my fault.
I've been super lazy.  
Not to say that I NEVER have anything to do because honestly, I've been quite busy for the past few weeks.

Vacation.
New Car.
School work (I won't give you  link to that one because no one wants to be bored).

But I've certainly had some down time too.
I have this little pet peeve about people complaining about how busy they are and saying they can't get anything done because they're SOOOOOOOO busy when they really aren't.  

Unless you have kids or you're going to medical school, you're probably not THAT busy.
I'm guilty of it too.  
And let's face it,
It's a good excuse.

Maybe not a good excuse to give other people because they probably see right through it.  Like when we say we're late because there was traffic and everyone knows that there was no traffic because they got there the same way.
 But we think we're fooling ourselves when we say this.
And that's what counts.

Well, I'm going to stop it here. 

I'm. Not. That. Busy.

Sure, I have a house to take care of  and papers to grade and IEP's to write and dogs to walk and errands to run and a husband to spend time with and grad school work to get done.
But really, I'm not so busy that I can't get anything done.

That's the excuse I've been using for weeks to not blog as much as I should be.  I have had some writers block and it's been a problem.  But even when I do have an idea for a blog post, I've been putting it off. 

'Well, I'll just watch 30 min. of TV and then I'll write.'
'I'll just read a chapter, and then I'll write.'
'I'll write after dinner.'
'I've been so busy all day. I'll write tomorrow.'

No more excuses.
Today I get myself organized, motivated and back on track!


If anyone else has experienced this lack of motivation, I'd love to hear some suggestions of how to get back into the swing of things!

  1. Well you just explained my life. Hahaha. You are not alone! I struggle with what to write all the time and when I finally have a good idea... I just never do it! I have decided to have a scheduled part of the day that I do my blogging. That way.. It gets done. I will even make myself a snack for extra motivation. At the end of the day, I love blogging but sometimes I just get super lazy!
