Write an Incentive Post to Kick-start Your Writing Goals

Black Hole

Where did the time go?

Sometimes I need little extra push to get myself pointed in the right direction. There are countless methods out there that proclaim to cure a writer of their creative blocks, or motivate even the most lethargic pencil pusher.

Nostrums! Snake Oil! Autism-causing vaccinations! OK, maybe not that last one.

As a slacker fueled by distractions, I have attempted just about every method out there to escape the event horizon of the anti-productivity black hole. Yet, even my ever-increasing mass does not seem to attract enough accountability to keep me from ignoring the goal all together and justifying my inaction.

Something a little more drastic must be done.

Worthless Genius Podcast Season 2 Episode 1

What’s this? A new Worthless Genius Podcast Episode?

It’s been forever since the last episode of the Worthless Genius Podcast, so bear with me as I get back into the swing of things.

In this weeks episode, I touch on the following topics:

60 Days, 60(+) Posts – Part Deux

Back in mid September, I launched an initiative to get myself to write more, called 60 Days, 60(+) Posts.  That initiative turned out to be a rousing success, so I’d like to announce that I am once again taking up the challenge.

Podcast Episode #3 – News and The Appalachian Independent

I had originally planned on re-recording this, but time dictated me no grace. A more well-rounded episode will be available for next week.

Episode 3 of the Worthless Genius Podcast brings us back to the format that premiered in Episode 2. We have two short news article discussions, and a Site to See. Classes start today for me, so this week’s release schedule may be a little tight. I would like to get into a 10 minute show every Monday, Wednesday and Friday if possible, but we’ll see what time is like. Here’s what we covered today:

Quick Idea: Mood-based GTD System

I have no idea if something like this has been created, as I’ve only just had a few minutes to mull it over in my mind. It sounds more like a psychology experiment than a truly achievable computer science experiment.

Lately I’ve been finding out that my brain doesn’t work well on the 9-5, M-F work schedule that seems to work out for most people in this world. I’m not really sure why this is, but it seems to be built into my brain, as it’s been very hard for me to break. I’ve tried many things to try to jump start my brain, but have been unable to get something that keeps me on a regular schedule. I can wake up physically at 7am every morning in order to have an extra hour of time to get things done, but that doesn’t make me get things done.

Time-Delay Posting

I’m tinkering around with the features of WordPress lately. I’ve begun to see that a lot of times, I have no energy to write some drivel about anything at all in my life, and this means that I don’t produce any results.

I’ve started using the “Schedule Later” feature here on WordPress, so that I can write a bunch of articles when I have the urge, and choose to publish them at a later date when I know I just won’t have the energy.

So, if you start to see articles published at odd times in the night, or while I’m currently in class, don’t worry, I’m actually sleeping or paying attention (respectively, of course), and not wasting the time that is given to me.

Anyway, just a heads up in that department.
