Busy doing nothing

I seem to be going round in circles. There are so many things that need doing which are the less welcome side of writing that I tend to push them to one side until they become absolutely urgent.

I guess I’m a procrastinator.

I’d be interested to hear how many of you procrastinate – or do you always do things the moment they need doing?

Go on – make me feel bad about myself.

    Hi Margaret!
    Welcome to the club (if there is such a thing)!
    I tend to write down when it is due, and then not do it until that day or the day before, ostensibly because there are so many things on that list that need to be done first!
    There IS method to my madness – or at least “I” think so: why do something now and then find out later you either didn’t need to do it at all (plans have changed; an appointment was cancelled) or else you need it done differently. Either way means I’ve wasted my time (and possibly ruined it if there needed to be changes).
    Yup. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    I’m a procrastinator too. Solitaire is my weakness and it’s so much nicer than doing the vacuuming 🙂

      I’m glad there are other procrastinators out there. I love your theory, Laney4 about leaving things until the last minute when there’s always a chance it might not need doing after all. You’re my type of girl.

      And, Lacey, Sudoku is my weakness. My DH has just bought himself an i-pad and one of the first things I did was download Sudoku.

    Margaret, Sudoku is MY weakness too! I do puzzles in the tub, in waiting rooms, between badminton games, and always right before falling asleep at night – basically anywhere I have a free moment (and the book I am currently reading just doesn’t “cut it” at that time). I prefer the fast and easy puzzles where I don’t have to write small numbers in the squares, but I’m up to the harder ones too. When I feel stumped, I go to the “answers” and deliberately choose a wrong number (especially if it’s a choice of two numbers and they are in diagonal rows). I love it when you can “do the puzzle right”, but it isn’t the answer in the back of the book.
