Mini Musings- How Do I Avoid Self Sabotage?

Hello my friends, I have been neglecting my posts (and all of your posts) more and more lately and I have no real good reason for why that is happening.  I still find that I have many things that I want to write about, but I find that I would rather do something (anything) else than sit down and type them out!  (Let’s just say that I am going to have the most awesome Halloween costume this year.)

I am calling this section Mini Musings.  My stories tend to be between 1,000 and 2,000 words and sometimes I just want to throw something out there that will help me with one dilemma or another.  Hopefully these posts won’t be so constant that they become annoying.
