Oh yes, I am sitting here procrastinating when I have plenty of work to do as far as getting my writing on. I have one manuscript that I wish to resubmit somewhere else, because one publisher is taking too long to reply, which makes me think they have no need for it. They did say they only respond if they are interested. So, I guess it is time to move on, it has been 3 months according to my records. Thank goodness I write everything down. Another manuscript, according to another publisher needs to be revamped, edited or worked on; because according to them, it's not quite there yet. However, they aren't publishing anymore books for a couple of years, which means they aren't interested in publishing it because instead of being a publishing house, they are moving into critiquing and reviewing manuscripts in order to help writers/authors prepare their work for publishing. Hey, I just thought of something. I already do that with my own freelance writing and editing business, "Dream Writers' Essentials." Which means, maybe my manuscript is fine just the way it is, especially since they aren't looking for something to publish. I think as a new company starting out, they just want and need somewhere to start their new adventure. But you know what, at this time, I am not a lab rat and neither is my manuscript. They also want some money, like 150.00 dollars to be a part of their (whatever it is they are doing.) In this case, sometimes it pays to procrastinate. Think before you sign on the dotted line and by all means....use common sense at all times. If something doesn't fit quite right with you, walk away from it. Listen to your inner voice.
Yes, I am procrastinating, something needs to spark my imagination and give me a desire to write today, because for the life me, it is not transpiring today. Where did it go? Is it possible for a writer to be bored when there are characters waiting to be born and ideas waiting to unfold?
Instead of writing, what I feel like doing is closing my eyes and going to sleep. Now that is too much procrastination for a Wednesday afternoon. I am going to blame being in this stalemate kind of situation on this wintery weather....Hey, I refuse to blame myself.
Oh, I just realized something, I really didn't procrastinate with the writing today.....Look, I wrote a blog!!!! My writing was accomplished today!
