Hello, My Name is PJ and I am a Procrastinator

I think it’s time for an intervention. I’m working on three weeks with little to no motivation, and even now, I’m wasting a blog post talking about my writer’s block instead of working on my books.

Usually, lists help, but even now they aren’t doing it for me. For the past week, I have had this list by my computer to prompt me for writing.

Writing Projects

  • The Savrith Tree
  • Principles of Eating Green
  • Eco-Wellness for Blog
  • Conservation Fitness 30 Day Challenge
  • Articles for Submission
  • Why Zoos Matter
  • The Cynics Guide to the Pacific Northwest
  • Fitness, Nutrition, and Conservation articles for magazines and guest blogging
  • Queries and Book Proposals

Okay, granted, I worked on the Savrith Tree the other day and finished a beautiful poem that I’m super proud of (poetry is HARD). But everything else? C’mon, it’s not like I don’t have the information. Just freaking write!

I think I need another 30 day writing challenge. I’m pretty sure I need a writing challenge.

Which would you prefer as readers? 30 Days of Eating Green or 30 Days of Eco-Wellness? Both are going to be ultimately challenging for me. But it sure beats not writing.

This is also a call for help. A few days ago, I literally stopped writing mid-sentence because I hit my minimum word count. I haven’t gone to writing groups, but things are still a little crazy with Chris’ doctor appointments and commitments I have for myself.

I thought after finishing my first book, I’d be moved to start writing again. I finished my second book, only after brushing it off and brushing it off and realizing I had to finish it pronto or risk not taking it to AAZK with me. But the muse is alluding me now.

What are ways you have staved off the dreaded plateau, aka Writers Block? Hit me up in the comments and help a desperate sister out.


The Savrith Tree

Once upon a time is how we’ll begin
For that is the best way to tell stories with friends

There was a kingdom of the magical fair ones
The powers of nature could not be outdone Continue reading The Savrith Tree

Big News for ZooFit

As many of my friends are aware, Chris and I moved to Seattle for the month of August while he recuperates from his kidney transplant. Having twice weekly labs and twice weekly clinic appointments meant it would be easier to live closer to the hospital than island life allowed. Continue reading Big News for ZooFit

Principles of Eating Green: Get to Know Your Food

Finally, I’m finishing up my Principles of Eating Green series. This is the last one, and in my opinion, THE most important one of all. Maybe I should make this number one. Continue reading Principles of Eating Green: Get to Know Your Food

Principles of Eating Green: Pass on the Plastic

Over the last few years, I have progressively developed habits to eat healthy and sustainably.  My first habit I ever created was eliminating palm oil from my diet. Continue reading Principles of Eating Green: Pass on the Plastic
