The art of Procrastination

 

Procrastination. Almost worse than writer’s block for a writer. At least with writer’s block, we are making an effort at trying to get some writing done. With procrastination, on the other hand, we know we should be writing, but we put it off, telling ourselves we’ll do it later and make excuses to ourselves for it.

For example, I’d intended to try to get some writing done on my book this weekend. Yesterday, I spent most of the day over at my mother’s instead, helping her with some things. Then by the time I got home, I was exhausted and didn’t feel mentally up to writing. Ok, that’s a fair excuse, right? But what’s my excuse for today, where I’ve pretty much just been watching videos on the computer, telling myself “just one more episode” and playing around on here? There really is none except being lazy. And now it’s almost dinner time and I’ve not gotten anything written. Tsk tsk.

Perhaps tomorrow I’ll get around to finally setting that daily word count goal I’d intended to start and finally get some writing done after work.
Procrastination at its best.

Panther

Panther

Black as Night
It hides in the shadows,
Bright golden orbs
Watching the movements
Of the unsuspecting before it;
Then, suddenly, it strikes,
And Death claims yet another victim
As the Panther snatches its Prey.

 

 

 

Just a little poem I wrote a while back, inspired by Shadow, my black kitty.

When the nephew of a prominent nobleman goes missing, mercenary sorceress Marissa “Riss” Cobalt is hired to find him. The seemingly normal job quickly turns complicated for the solitary young sorceress, however, as she first ends up unexpectedly teaming up with a handsome swordsman, then finds herself the subject of an ancient prophecy. With a Demon hunting them, the young mage and her friend search for a lost relic of great power mentioned in the prophecy. Can Riss survive her various adventures and fulfill her destiny to save the world from the dark god, Yangul?

 
This is my first book. It is currently available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble as e-book and POD paperback.
