I Won Second Place in the Procrastinating Writers Blog Essay Contest!

I wrote a post called Let Your Light So Shine back in December, and mentioned I was working on an essay for The Procrastinating Writers Blog essay contest. I’m thrilled to announce my essay won second place! You can read it here if you’d like. I’ll also be writing a guest post for The Procrastinating Writers Blog which should be posted around the end of March. Stay tuned and thanks, as always, for reading!


  1. Congratultions! That's a great article. I haven't read the e book you helped me win about blogging, but I promise I will as soon as some time frees up. Caring for my mother has been all-consuming. I especially like the frog-eating analogy. It's true.

  2. This is fantastic news! I'm a world class procrastinator, but I've committed myself to doing NaNo this year 🙂

    A good friend of mine just has been picked up by a subsidiary of Random House, and I've been doing some horn blowing for her. It takes soooo much discipline to get from point A to point B. I'm inspired by my writer friends, daily!

    Thank you for today's inspiration 🙂

  3. Hi Kass! Thanks very much! No worries, whenever you have time to read the e-book is fine, there is definitely not a deadline or anything like that. I can imagine caring for your mother would take up much of your time, so please don't feel there is any hurry to reading the book! You'll get to it when you can. I really like Brian Tracy's frog-eating analogy, too. It's something I'm still working at, every day.

    Hi Kim! Thanks! I, too, am a world class procrastinator, it's too bad there's not a paid position for such a thing. Best of luck with NaNo! I'm going to have to do that at least once, too (I started out wanting to be a fiction writer but have gotten away from it once I found out how much fun blogging and writing nonfiction can be, but I do have a novel in me and want to get back to it, soon). I'm not sure if you had a chance to read Sara Lambert's winning essay (here's a link just in case): http://procrastinatingwritersblog.com/2010/03/how-sara-lambert-overcame-her-procrastination-in-2009/, she wrote about participating in NaNo for the first time. She wrote 175,000 words in 2009 partly because of NaNo. Awesome.

    Congratulations to your friend! That's fantastic news! It really does take so much discipline to get to that point (which I'm still learning about and hopefully getting better at), and when you hear an inspiring story like that it helps us all stick to it! We're all in this together, and we can all keep each other going!

    Thank you, Kim, for reading, for your kind words, and for sharing your friend's success story; you have inspired me! 🙂
