Procrastination

 

napkin

I am notorious, as most writers, at procrastinating. I attend a monthly writing group, and typically write something that afternoon. I regret that because I feel that the time is a precious opportunity to get feedback on my writing — and I don’t want to waste anyone’s time.

However, month after month the same thing happens. To a point that it is a joke with the group. This past month, when I told my friend Roxanne that I had started my writing for that night on a napkin at lunchtime, she wrote two Haikus for me. (FYI – A Haiku has three lines, with 5 syllables in the first, 7 in the second and 5 in the third. They have no title)

A Haiku for Sally #1

Yep, just a napkin

Sally has done it again

That is all she needs

A Haiku for Sally #2

What has she written?

I can hardly wait to see

How does she do it?

 

I loved them. Wonder what I’ll do next month. Thank you, Roxanne Fawley – I don’t know how you did it so succinctly!

Well, I finally did it.  I started submitting my photography to shutterstock.com!  I’m excited about it.

Talk about a character building exercise!  So  far I’ve had more rejections than acceptances — but I’m improving. I’m starting to improve my prediction about whether they will accept it or not.

One detail is that you need to zoom to 200% to ensure that it is in focus – fully!  Think about that for a moment. How would you like to have your life zoomed to 200%?  God has our lives zoomed to over 1000% – makes me think about how I want to spend my time on this earth!

Check out my portfolio – so far!
