#SoCS, being a creative, creative business, downward spiral, Edible Drive, Edibles, procrastinate, productivity, Stream of Consciousness
Today’s prompt is “drive.” Use it as a noun, an adjective, or a verb–use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!
My drive for productivity fluctuates. Early mornings are based on necessity. I focus better with a deadline, and I find myself lagging when they are not hanging over my head.
I procrastinate when I shouldn’t, and I can’t explain why sometimes.
I could be getting ahead. I could be having fun doing the bits I like or getting the rough stuff over with. Maybe, it’s that I feel like I’m not accomplishing anything even when I do the work. Being a creative is half business, and although I understand it well, I’ve never been good at it.
And so, my drive dwindles. Such a bitter downward spiral.
It only worsens when the work piles up.
I wish I had a way to inject myself with more drive. Although, honestly, I’d prefer smoking or eating it.
Edible drive. Can you imagine?
Someone patent that and send me some. For real.

I hear you! I need deadlines. I need fun stuff too. I love the days when I’m driven to get things done. But I beat myself up on the days that I’m not.

I was taught if you want to be a writer, you put yourself on a chair in front of the computer and write. I have a new philosophy (That one didn’t work)
“Do the other things I need to do. If inspiration strikes, write. If not, read. It’s training for a writer anyway.”
I wonder if that’s why I write posts on my blog so infrequently…
