After a long heart to heart, I am acknowledging that I’ve been using this blog as a way to keep procrastinating about working on my second novel (and a few other things too). By blogging that I am not working on the things I want to be working on, I am using that as a reason to continue to not work on them. So just admitting that I’m not working on my novel, is somehow letting me off the hook each week instead of actually getting down to business and working on it.
No, no, no, this is not what I wanted to accomplish with this blog. This blog is supposed to be about the writing I’m doing, not the endless procrastinating I’ve been indulging in for the last three months.
What I’m writing = another long poem for class. I submit it tomorrow. Then other than rewrites for the final portfolio, I’m done for the semester and off school for the summer.
What I’m reading = The Shack by William P. Young and A Dark Matter by Peter Straub. Occasionally I read more than one book at a time, needing at times to alternative between one I am enjoying for pure entertainment purposes, and one I am really paying attention to and thinking about.
My novel = I’ve run out of excuses, so keep tuned.
