I’ve been heavy in the editing over the past few days and it’s been a bit of slog to be honest. Not so much because the edit is hard – though I won’t call this one easy – but because I’m suffering from procrasinatitis! You know, inflammation of the procrastination muscle.
To avoid working, I have over the past two days:
- listened to podcasts
- done the dishes
- made soup
- streamed a documentary
- had a long text conversation with a friend
- created a new playlist
- blogged (hmm…)
Not that there’s anything wrong with taking a break, or getting necessary household things done, but I know that’s not why these tasks got attention. No. It was totally about avoiding the edit.
The good news is that I’m still getting some editing done. As some being better than none, I celebrate this!
In fact – while I’m looking for inspirational positives – I realised today that my productivity has been somewhat better than I thought. After editing books with short chapters for a couple of years, I’d forgotten that 4K chapters feel slooooow by comparison!
