What's Up With This?

What is it about procrastinating that so appeals to me?

I'm staring at a work that is now about 7k words that needs large blocks moved around. Last night, when E was in gymnastics, I did some line edits in the front. They were easy, but I was uneasy. It wasn't that they were wrong, it was that I wasn't ready yet for line editing. I was still playing around with overall shape and needed to move large blocks of text (as opposed to just cutting). But I didn't have my hard copy with me.

And today, I've had a munchkin underfoot which is never helpful and I read mail and created new mail and read blogs and now I'm creating new blogs. All in the interest of helping others to procrastinate as well.

Argh. I really want to dive in and do it. I really want to stick my toe in. It's sort of like a pool of water, you know? So here I am sitting in a chair at the side of the pool, doing neither.

In other news, Miss E is off to Disneyworld to see the xmas decorations tomorrow morning for 5 days. With her aunt. I couldn't see paying the airfare to go with her, so she will have this big adventure without me. Hopefully, she will take photos for me.
