May 17, 2009 No More Nagging- I'm Doing it!
What's that saying our grandmothers had about procrastination? I think it is "pee or get off the pot!" That's what a writer friend told me to do recently. Well, not in those exact words, but she got her point across. Linda (http://www.vegaslindalou.blogspot.com/), a successful book author/blogger/radio host/standup comedian has been on me to get going on the book I have been whining about writing. Linda suggested I start a blog; sharing snippets of my story, a method she assures me will provide discipline and accountability to this perpetual procrastinator. By doing so she is convinced I’ll have enough material to fill that longed-for book.
So here’s the debut of the Lisa Gioia Story, a compilation of recollections of a life lived spontaneously and some would say, erratically. It’s a life that for 51 years has provided me with amusement and, yes, sometimes deep sorrow.
Whether or not anyone reads the blog is of no consequence, it’s the work I’ve been putting off for far too long now. So, Linda – here you go. I’m committing for now to writing and posting a blog twice weekly; that’s every Monday and Thursday from here on out. It may take the next 50 years to get it all down but as another old saying goes, “it’s better late than never!
Thanks for the push Linda – wish me luck!
