On the Slowdown: Procrastination

Oh my god. I thought novel two would be easy. After all, it's a continuation, really. All of the main characters are familiar, I have the plot in my head, and noted in a variety of places, ideas are coming fast and furious, but I have not sat down to write since before Christmas.

I... I... ok, I'll come clean. I am a procrastinator. It's too dark to write. Or too sunny outside, I should be out there. The laundry is behind. My family is hungry, how selfish of me to write instead of cooking something nice for dinner, and maybe some cookies. And bread. And maybe I should cook meals for the week...

And tonight, shoving actual writing out of the way again, I am attending a Capital Crime Writers meeting at the Ottawa Public Library. Tonight's topic: The Art of Arson Investigation. For serious! Who can miss that?

So, 5000 words and counting. Only 75, 000 to go.

I'll start tomorrow.
