Conundrum

Whenever I’m stuck in proposal writing hell, I tend to come up with all sorts of fun ideas for blog posts. But my inner adult likes reminding me “if you have the mental bandwidth to be doing creative writing, you should be getting those proposals written so you can get Altius more money, not having fun on your blog”. So when I need a mental health break, I end up wasting my time on things like blog reading, tweeting, or playing Civ 4. So ironically, in my attempt to not do something worthwhile because it would distract from getting my proposals written, I end up doing something worthless instead…

Short version: probably won’t be blogging at least through mid-February. Sorry guys.

    In short, you need to find something more important to not do, so that the proposals are a form of procrastination.

    Jon, I recently re-watched Dreamcatcher, a Steven King movie I liked. One of the phrases in it was from a child: “Scooby Dooby Doo, we got some work to do now…..”! GO FOR IT!

    Your situation sounds so very familiar. I do this again, and again, and again. Can’t seem to learn from this particular mistake…

    Break’s over! Back on your heads!

  5. Doug,
    I’m glad I’m not the only one who knows that joke. 🙂
