Anything to Avoid Writing

Yesterday I finished writing up thirteen pages of notes in an attempt to analyze Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking. The paper I need to write on the topic will be between two and five pages. Hmmm.

This morning, after walking the dog, I started highlighting Anne LaMott's Hard Laughter. I also checked my email six times, did some insurance paperwork and ate lunch. I'm considering going outside to begin pulling weeds in the yard. Hmmmm.

Think perhaps I am procrastinating? Um. Yes. Okay. Here's my promise to you. Before tomorrow, I will actually edit two scenes from the memoir. That may not sound like much, but it's more than I've done in five days.

Scout's honor. See you tomorrow.

Whew! So glad you clarified that. Weeds. Yes. Weeds. Pulling woods could be misinterpreted! ;-o
