Know Thyself Challenge: Day 2

Day 2: What is your biggest writing weakness, and what do you think you need to change to work on it?


I would argue that my, and probably other writers too, biggest weakness as a writer would be a combination of the following:

  • Procrastination
  • Boredom
  • Lots to say no time to say it
  • Lack of boozes no I ain’t joking

You know… If I had… Well if perhaps life was…

Look, I’ll just bluntly honest, I’m lazy as all fuck! I love to write. With all my heart and soul, writing will forever my first love. I just don’t pay it enough attention and the ideas don’t flow as smoothly as they used to when I was younger. Of course when I was younger, I used to keep journals and write and write all day and all night. It was easy and convenient. I could be anywhere, doing anything and all I’d need is a pen and a journal. I have a million and one journals; partly cuz I love collecting them and partly cuz I use them for almost everything except actually collecting my thoughts. It’s quite expensive and annoying to keep collecting journals. But I do because sometimes they inspire me to think and write without interruption.

Buuuuuuuut again I’m lazy as fuck. If given a choice between sleeping, food and writing, I’d probably choose food, sleeping then writing. Yaaaaaaaaz in that exact order. #phatgurlworldproblems #sleeeeeeeeepisgoooood

With all that said, I know exactly how to remedy my laziness but honestly, there are times I just don’t wanna. I enjoy not having a necessity to do something. I enjoy sleeping waaaaaay more than developing a blog post. I also don’t have WiFi at home. don’t judge me! That’s probably measures right up there with me being lazy. The cost of Internet is a mutha fucker. I don’t understand why it’s so expensive or even how people afford internet service.

Rants aside, I think at times having these weaknesses sorta puts my writing in perspective. I’m all talk and no drive. There are times when I’m motivated to crank out posts every other day or week. But shit life happens at the most inopportune times for me. So I make up excuses as i am right nah to somehow make myself feel better about not writing. But what else is new?

Comment below and lemme know what  writing weaknesses you possess.

La La La Laaaaaaaaa

I’m sitting in the middle of the Nissan dealership close to my house waiting for Optimus Prime 7 3 O Prime for short to be serviced and returned to me. Sigh its gon cost me around $250 to have the oil changed and to replace the front brakes which isn’t bad considering it could cost more if I didn’t have coupons. Sigh being an adult sucks dude.


Truck payments

Insurance (vehicle and health)


I’ll be okay. Just venting.


Today is going to be a busy busy day. As I said, I’m getting Prime serviced at the dealership. Then I’m off to Michaels to get scrapbooking/craft materials for a very special present for my BabySis. Then I gotta go to the store to get stuff for my world famous chili. If y’all are nice I’ll post the recipe one day. I would like to make it home before the Baylor/OU game starts on FS1 but that’s doubtful. I just have too much to do. Oh well my Baylor homie will keep me posted until I get home.

After the Baylor game, I plan to listen to the UH/Tulane game. Shout to all my #CoogNation family and friends. This should be a relatively easy game for UH. I mean it’s Tulane. LOL teams always play the easy to beat teams on Homecoming. Of course, that doesn’t go for Baylor and UH. I’m all for being a “home wrecker” at someone else’s Homecoming game. nasty little shit ain’t i? There are multiple of other college football games I would like to see today too. Oh how I love November! This is when the puppies will be separated from the big dawgs. Let’s git er dun yo!

La la la Laaaaaaaaa!!! Like my singing?! Doesn’t it remind you of the movie Babe?

LOL I couldn’t stand that little pig but now I mimic him all the time. Don’t mind me I’m just crazy.

Okay this post is all over the place. Hope everyone has a great Saturday.

Buh bye now buh bye and thanks for reading…
