Foiled (for my own good)

me: i SO want to redesign my website
b/c it’s a project i can undertake and actually FINISH
and SEE the results

John: or

me: ugh i know
that’s what i’m obviously procrastinating

but also, “new year, new look!”
it would make so much sense :D

John: or
NEW YEAR NEW BOOK

me: LOL

YOU ARE RIGHT

  1. Yeah, I mean, if you want to hold the site redesign out as a cookie for yourself, go for it. But the two really have nothing to do with each other. How long will a site redesign take? A few days? At most a few weeks? And how long will writing a novel take? I’m thinking six months? And is there any reason these things can’t be tackled simultaneously for however long it takes to redesign the site? I don’t really see the conflict here. I see distracting yourself with a new novel idea as problematic to getting any book written EVER. But redesigning your website? Meh. So set the plot up a bit more for me, okay?

    Evil temptress!

    They have nothing to do with each other except for using up my time. But you’re right that a website would take days vs. a book’s months. And no worries, he didn’t mean a NEW new book. Just finishing the one I’m working on now.

    Sorry! :P

  3. I feel like I have that conversation with myself every week! I’ve been “in the middle” of having my site redesiged for a year now. Same with revising my book!

    Haha, yeah, that’s how it’s been going… I think I’m going to keep sketching out the redesign (mentally and literally) until I’m completely happy with it. THEN I will commit the time to coding it.

    Well if you find any spare time, I vote for working on the book over the website. ;)

  5. Resist the temptation! I always think it will take days, and then one week gets swallowed, then another… LOL I agree with John, new year new book :D

  6. I would like to redesign my site, but I really don’t know how. I need to get graphic design savvy. :(

    Good luck with the book. Agreed that it’s probably a better use of time, haha.
