Queen of Procrastination
This week I've managed to clean out closets, dust those little annoying knick-knacks that line my piano, bake scones (yes, moi!), catch up on my Arizona Highways magazines, surf vacation rentals for next summer, play way too long on Twitter and Tumblr, and bring a load of donated books to the library from my bookcases which are now perfectly organized. This can only mean one thing...
I've reached The Murky Middle of my current novel.
Da. Da. Daaa!! *Cue the ominous creepy music*
Yep, The Murky Middle is truly the hard, agonizing, frustrating part of writing, in my opinion. How do you connect that great beginning with that cool ending you've already written in your mind?! The Murky Middle is like a Griswold family car vacation: Everything's great for the first hour. The family is singing and playing the License Plate Game, but then you just want the next ten hours to fly by so that you can reach the dang ocean.
Anyone else procrastinating this week? If yes, what do you do so you'll do anything except what you should be doing? Bonus: The winner gets to wear the crown!
