Well, not on writing, or making bears for orders, or working on promotions, but...
Okay, so every year I tell myself I'll organize my papers so that by tax time I'm much more organized. And every day, I tell myself I'll put my clothes away when I get home at night after work. And every every week I tell myself I'm going to start weeding the garden.
But I have good reasons for procrastinating on THIS stuff.
It's because I'm not procrastinating on the OTHER stuff.
With working full-time at a job where I can't work on anything but my job, teaching online writing classes at night, publishing my earlier eclectic works from fantasy to urban fantasy and young adults, writing my current contracted books, and ohmigosh, promotions--which since Heart of the Highland Wolf is coming out in June, that means writing a million blogs and appearing on a million blogs and so yes...Procrastination is not something I can do. :)
Prioritization is absolutely necessary. Self-imposed deadlines is essential. But not everything that needs to be done can be done in a day, week, or month. Sooo, that means some things just don't have the priority that other things do.
Which is why I'm up at 5 AM to write blogs, then work some more on the first of the jaguar shifter series--something that's too fun to research and write and I can't procrastinate on, make a cover for one of my vampire romantic suspenses, Killing the Bloodlust, and uploading it, and I've got to get 2 bears done for an order--all this weekend!!
But I also have to work at the library this morning. *sigh* That's to make up for time I took off on Thursday to spend 3 hours trying to renew my driver's license. I'm a month early, but you know what? It's just not something I'm willing to procrastinate on!
Are you a PART-TIME procrastinator???
