Saturday, May 22nd, 2021

UPDATE: All 6 commenters are winners!

“Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week.”
~ Spanish Proverb

Are you like me?

I just finished a quick, intense gig editing for another author, and now have time to pay attention to my own writing. However, here I am, sleeping in late, not wanting to make my bed, not wanting to look at my work schedule, which if I don’t begin my new project soon, I’ll be crunching words to get the book done in time. “I write better when adrenaline kicks in anyway!” I say.

I tell myself I can start tomorrow. I can add an extra page to my next few days’ work to catch up. The pool is still pretty cool, I can wait to brush the sides to get rid of any algae. I can dust tomorrow. Doesn’t binge-watching some TV series sound like more fun (I’m watching True Blood for the first time)? I need to rest, right?

Excuses, all.

I love this quote: “Procrastination gives you something to look forward to.” ~ Joan Konner

She gets it. We know we’re being stupid, but argh, I just don’t wanna do nuthin today.

How about you? Do you know any funny procrastinator’s quotes or sayings? Do you have days when you look away from the dishes exploding in the sink—not because you have something more important to do, but because you plain ol’ want to do absolutely nothing?
