The Thief of Time


I was going to write this post last night.

Then, I was going to write it first thing this morning.

It's now just after lunch, and I'm finally getting around to it.

Where does all the time go?

The answer to that question leads us to this week's writing quote:

"Procrastination is the thief of time."
- Joseph Heller

Oh, that's it. Procrastination took my time away. The thief!

I never used to be good at procrastination, but I'm learning!

And I hate it.

I hate how I feel when it's the night before a big event, and I'm scrambling.

I hate the sleepless nights, or even worse - the nightmares of being unprepared if I do actually manage to sleep.

Each time I promise myself that I'll be more on top of it next time.

Like I always used to be.

What happened to me?

Kids?

Church service?

Work?

Housework?

Friends?

Television?

Books?

General laziness?

Writing?

Okay, so it's probably all of the above. Plus a few other things.  Like trying to find a picture for this:

I love it! You hit the nail on the head Kim. There just isn't enough hours in the day. You are really great at pulling everything off though.

Too funny. I've been praying for inspiration before I start another book then it hit me, it's better to start and at least accomplish something rather than wait around all year for some amazing inspiration. Thanks for the great post!

Thank goodness you're young and healthy. There's a time and season for everything, and you'll get around to it!
