“I’m a big believer in lists. You write your wants down on paper, and it’s like putting them out there to the Universe: ‘Bitch, you gotta make this happen for me.”
― Katy Evans
I am a very enthusiastic list writer. I have been for a far back as I can remember. I have memories being quite small and writing lists of things I needed to do, to buy, places to go, things I wanted to draw, and when I had so many lists, I made lists for those lists.
As an adult, things haven’t changed much. I am far more productive when I have listed what I need to do. It seems going to the bother of actually putting words on paper is how my brain knows this shit has got to be done. I guess it’s a form of self domming myself lol but it works, most of the time. I would never have thought lists were a kink until I saw the utter passion Kayla Lords has for them and god damn, if they weren’t a kink before I attended her talk at Eroticon, that woman has most definitely convinced me they are now!
I share that very same satisfaction as Kayla has crossing things off a list. Honestly, it is one of life’s simple pleasures. I will even admit to adding a few extra jobs that weren’t on the list to start that I managed to get done, just so I can get that ‘fuck yes’ satisfaction because I completed my list!
I bought the cutest little journal book(that you can see below) to help me with list-making for my blog – one side is calendar style with spaces to write and the other is a colour in page. I picked this simply because sometimes as much as I love lists they can sometimes make me anxious too. The colouring helps, sometimes 😉
