I’m a real procrastinator when it comes to getting most things done. If I don’t want to do it, I delay the pain as long as possible, usually resulting in more pain and more delay.
On the other hand, if I want to do it, I try to make sure that everything is set up for me to do it just right, because I want my cool thing to be the best cool thing it can be. This “just too precious” phenomenon means that, even if I manage to find the perfect time to start, I never find the perfect time to finish. I set myself an impossible standard and then move the goal posts on it to boot. This holds me back from completing and publishing my half-dozen different manuscripts, some in progress for over a decade.
But not this time.
It’s a tale of about 1,600 words, mostly in the style of Grimm’s Fairy Tales and like material, with a “moral” courtesy of the Biblical book of Proverbs. If you’d like a copy, currently only $0.99, just hop on over to this link and tell the good folks at Amazon.
Having now broken the mental barrier on this one, there will be more to come!
