How many can I list? #mybadhabits #MFRWauthor #amwriting
It is time again for the 52-weekMFRWblogchallenge. It is week 35 and the topic is My Bad Habits.
At least this week it is easy. I have tons of bad habits.
Number one is nail biting. I have tried to stop but to no avail. I actually don’t bite my nails but the dried cuticles underneath so I always have sore looking and. I’ll never be a hand model.
#2. I constantly going around shutting doors and drawers. If something sticks out I have fixed it.
#3 I set expectations and goals so high no human can meet them. When I worked I was a manager and my to do lists for each shift were always long. It looked like a lot but would write things exactly. Most of them were small chores and I would rather they stay busy.
I believe this is why I never finish a story. I set my to do list so high that I work on it and never get to the writing part or am too tired when I do. I have whittled down a lot of my workload so that it is more attainable and to put the writing first. I will see how this happens.
I am a list maker. I have lists for everything. Cleaning, decluttering, crafts to do, crochet projects to do, gardening, menus, grocery lists, to do for writing, to do for home, schedules, I even have a list of my lists.
biting nails, not finishing what I start, too long of a list (see what I mean, setting expectations no human can meet personal and at work
I mean well…
That brings me to my writing. I have lists of stories that are finished drafts, some even completed, some that have been submitted rejected and I need to redo, lots of unfinished stories, lots of ideas for stories.
I have a bad habit of starting something then getting overwhelmed and stopping.
I may be staying on track working on a story when a new idea strikes. what can I do but stop and write it down, work out the characters. If not I will forget it.
I also have the bad habit of falling into the internet trap especially Pinterest. I can waste a full day there. I’ll pin recipes for hours and maybe use one on occasion.
