I procrastinate. A lot. I seem to find other things to do to keep me from doing what I should. This is not news to me. I know I do it. I just don’t know why.
Why don’t I want to write? I used to look for time to write. Now, I just can’t seem to get my imagination to run wild (I sure loved it when it ran wild).
So instead of writing, I read. And crochet. And watch TV. I used to watch TV all the time, before writing. I hate that I watch TV during the day now, but yet, I do, because I like the TV on when I’m crocheting. And right now crocheting is more fun than writing.
I have excuses as to why I don’t write. I don’t like the set up I have in the sunroom. I don’t like my glasses. Yeah, these are things I can fix, but I just don’t. Actually, I’m not sure HOW to set up my sunroom without removing/replacing furniture. And I don’t know what kind of furniture would help.
And then, I get a thought that maybe I should just quit. Just retire. And the next thing I do, I sign up for another book convention, hoping that will motivate me.
So far they haven’t.
I want to finish Ghostly Protector. I NEED to finish it. And maybe it’s the finishing it that is causing me to procrastinate. Because if I finish it, I may just be finished. I don’t know.
It sure is hard being honest with yourself, isn’t it?
Here’s what I read since my last update:
Title: A Terrible Fall of Angels
Year of publication: 2021

Blurb from Book: Meet Zaniel Havelock, a man with the special ability to communicate directly with angels. A former trained Angel Speaker, he devoted his life to serving both the Celestial beings and his fellow humans with his gift, but a terrible betrayal compelled him to leave that life behind. Now he’s a cop who is still working on the side of angels. But where there are angels, there are also demons. There’s no question that there’s evil at work when he’s called in to examine the murder scene of a college student—but is it just the evil that one human being can do to another, or is it something more? When demonic possession is a possibility, even angelic protection can only go so far. A race is on to stop a killer before he finds his next victim, as Zaniel is forced to confront his own very personal demons, and the past he never truly left behind.
My thoughts: Not exactly a fast-paced book. Lots of back story to get through and lots of events that don’t seem connected to one another. Plus, the author can overdo it with the description (like she does in the Anita Blake series). Parts of it were enjoyable, though, so I will probably try the next book in the series (when/if it’s released) just to see if maybe the pace picks up.
So… are you a hopeless procrastinator? Think there’s a cure for me?
