I don't usually have to search for reasons to procrastinate and this week Mother Nature provided all the opportunities to avoid the writing chair.
Central PA is on pace as one of the wettest years ever. After receiving six inches of rain in a matter of hours a few days ago, our basement flooded for the second time this year. It's rain every day since so the weeds and lawn are growing like a rabbit running before a greyhound. We can't keep up. Tomorrow I'm going to use bleach to wash the basement floor again. I've almost chased out the odor.
I don't like complaining about the rain because so many people are having dry years. But the clean up chores have been draining the energy I usually put into my writing including my blogging. I've been remiss in visiting and posting. I'm behind in my edits.
I know real life interferes with all writers but June, July and now August seem to be ganging up on me. In a few weeks, days actually, I'll be back at the day job of teaching and my time will be even more limited. I always set big goals for the summer months and consistently fall short.
How have your recent goals been coming along? What recent events contributed to any procrastination issues you've been having? And is it raining there?
