Procrastinating with a capital P

1 Comment

After a shaky start, today has turned out to be a beautiful day.  My intentions, when I left work, were all good: pick up kids, walk dog, cook, feed family, take daughter to dance class, mow lawn, pick up daughter, get back to book.  I did all that except mow the lawn and do you know why?  Because the lawn had been cleared of dog poo!  There wasn’t much, it would have taken me and the scoop the best part of 3 minutes, but it was the excuse I needed; and I took it, wrapped it up nice and tight so no-one could pick at it, and shoved it down my bra!  Do fruitarians mow lawns?  Is it against their – what is it?  Belief?  Way of life?  – against what they believe in?  If so I may just decide to become a fruitarian.  Who know, I may lose some weight too!

I have edited all of 5 pages today and made very few changes.  I keep getting lost in the story today. 

I’m seriously losing the plot today.  A copy of Dan Brown’s Angels & Demons was handed back into the library this morning and I thought ‘Hm, I’ve been meaning to read that for ages’, so I took it with me when I sat down to have my lunch.  Two paragraphs in I realised I’d already read it!  I went and grabbed two chunks from my secret stash of chocolate for brain energy – the butternut squash and red pepper soup just wasn’t cutting it.

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2014 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Banished-ebook/dp/B008PGM4TQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1361913026&sr=8-1. If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you lied it - or even why not!

  1. Hi Bea
    Love reading your blog. Soup sounds good, but when that isn’t enough for me then 70% Lindt cholcolate hits the spot.
