I Write My Best Stuff Tomorrow
"Yesterday You Said Tomorrow". Nike Ad Slogan
I can't tell you the outrageous number of fabulous posts I've written in my head intending to get them done the next day.
In a perfect world, I'd max out all the posts I'm allowed to write on Bubblews and Persona Paper and have plenty all ready to post the next day.
But there are movies and television shows on Netflix that take priority.
Inspirational "how-to" videos on YouTube take precedence.
After all, shouldn't I be allowed to spend my time reading, watching and figuring out how to be a successful writer?
Isn't it time well spent?
I can always write tomorrow.
I convince myself that I need that 5 minutes of extra sleep.
And then again, it feels good, to just follow Nike's long standing mantra. So I've go-opted it for what I need to focus on today.
Just Do It.

Yesterday, I blew off a day of writing to spend a day with my cousins, Mom and her twin sister who were celebrating their 78th birthday. Read more about that here .
P.S. I just proofed my post and mis-spelled "co-opt" as "go-opt" but I think I'm going to consciously leave that typo in as that's a kind of cool made up word.
