Procrastination: Thief of Time

I've procrastinated a lot this morning since I woke up nine with the intention of actually doing some "proper" writing today. I've always wanted to spend more time writing, the extent of the creative writing I do at the moment being completing the tasks I set the kids in school which always lead to me being asked what books I read and being told, "It's really good, but you have a messed up mind!" Thanks... I think.

I love reading other people's blogs and I'm always struck by the creativity I find there. I check daily for new Picklesworth poetry and I like stumbling across arts and crafts blogs. Recently however, I've come across loads of writers who are doing it for fun and I've felt inspired to get down to writing. Once I finish procrastinating.

So this morning I have danced around to Paramore, The Veronicas, Thirty Seconds From Mars and The Wombats while cleaning. I have taken my French beans outside and re-potted them (note to self, buy bamboo canes... these guys need height) and now... now I must do some planning for my writing.

Here's wishing me luck in my endeavours, and you in yours.


  1. what a darling sight you have here! i love it. as i read your post i could tell you are a talented writer.
    good luck with the planning for the writing!

  2. "Proper" writing, eh? That's a tough slog sometimes. I try not to do it. ;)

  3. Maybe that's the secret of your success? Either way, we should all experiment with Welsh slang now and again and push the words proper and tidy to their limits...

  4. "Every day when I wake up, I thank the Lord I'm Welsh!" Well, no, but it's a nice thought.

  5. Thanks for popping in to my blog. I thought I would tune in and see where your writting went. I am no writter, I can't even spell but I do like the odd Frnch Bean. xxx

  6. Actually it's the countdown till my first road trip with my best friend :)
