It's been one of those days! where I didn't feel like doing anything. Have you ever had one? Well, fortunately, now that I am retired, I can do just that. But, how do you do nothing? I have to do something. I certainly didn't want to eat all day. I'm not into watching TV that much. I didn't want to sleep. I really don't like to exercise. I should walk the dog; but it's cold and rainy. What should I do? Maybe, I'll read.
So, I decided to get on the computer and get caught up on a lot of e-mail that I have just set aside, to read, someday. It is now 4 hours later and I don't seem to be making any headway. One thing leads to another and I have been all over the web. I decided that was enough.
Some of you may recall I began writing a book several years ago about my journey with cancer. I have been procrastinating lately and not written anything. So, today, I decided to take a look at it and get going again.
Wow! I know why I have been procrastinating. It's a lot of work. There is so much to tell; so much that happened in my journey. Everytime, I began to write I would think of something else that should have been included. So back I would go and add or edit what I had already said. It's also important to keep at this a little everyday so that I don't forget where I am going and what it is I want to say.
I have a new found admiration for people who can write and finish something. It is a mammoth job. The good news is I think I'm half way, unless I get more revelation.
Well, this was a nice little diversion. I'd better get back to writing, so I can tell myself that I did do something today.
Have a nice day!
