Procrastination: a dirty word

I have to admit it: I’m guilty of procrastinating. In fact, I’m doing it right this minute. I should be writing. I have several projects on the go; one full-length and two shorts, plus ideas for more, and instead I went shopping for NYE booze, cleaned my apartment (well, part of it), tidied my email inbox, and started writing this post. And after this, I’m sure I’ll find something else to do. Maybe a manicure.

I want to work on one of my shorts. I really do. It’s the one that I lost 2.5k words of in the horrific hard drive disaster of last week. I really liked those words, and I’m hoping to get them back. In the meantime, I’m hesitant to do any more work on the story. How lame is that for an excuse.

Okay, no more procrastinating! I have a goal: Write a minimum of 2.5k on any of my works in progress by NYE or NO DESSERT! That’s an easy goal. I can do it.

Hmm, my nails really are in bad condition…

About oliviaventura

I was born many years ago in... No, seriously, all you need to know about me is that I love love LOVE reading, and it's even more fun to write my own stories (I get to choose the ending that way). I've worked in plenty of different jobs, many in retail, which is the best way to meet some really colorful people, and also in recruitment, telecommunications, and food safety. I live in Melbourne, Australia, and I'm still on the lookout for Mr. Right, so if you know him, send him my way. In the meantime, I'd love to know what you think of my stories, so please drop me a line at liv@oliviaventura.net. Feel free to be lavish with your praise if you enjoyed, otherwise, be gentle!
