Procrastinate: delay or postpone action; put off doing something.
When you open a dictionary and look up the meaning of this word, you will see my picture as the illustration of what a procrastinator looks like.
Truly. This is what you’ll see.
Over the weekend I was all alone. Hubby was away and I had the house all to myself. I’d planned on doing my usual daily stuff – gym, laundry, book reviews – and write all I wanted to. I wouldn’t have to stop to cook a meal or take a shower. I could stay in my jammies all day and eat cereal if I wanted to for dinner.
I had such wonderful ideas about how much I was going to be able to write, since I’m working on three projects right now. I could devote all the time I wanted to to each of them, even writing in bed if I wanted to.
You’ve heard these two expressions, I’m sure: delusions of grandeur and the best laid plans?
That about sums up the amount of writing I got done over this alone-time weekend.
What did I do instead, you ask? Well, I’ll tell ya… I binge watched Hollywood Medium and the new season of Queer Eye ( Tan France is my favorite! @tanfrance)
And the term BINGE WATCHED is an accurate one. One right after the other without a pause or a thought that I should be working.
Not even an ounce of regret, either.
Hope your weekend was more productive. ~ Peg
Yeah, I’m pretty stoked right now. It’s for the first book in my Match Made in Heaven series DEARLY BELOVED.
Life is good – even though I didn’t get any writing done over the weekend…..
