This happens a lot with me, in both areas. We have had a lot of side-steps in moving. We were going to have an auction to sell our personal items, antiques, junk, etc. The auctioneer thought we did not have enough to do a good sale, so that was off. Another auctioneer has not returned our call to set a date to come see what we have. So another side-step, not a step back. I can always have a yard sale, which I will probably do.
When I think I am doing so good with my writing, then I find I have more to do, or more to learn, and that is another side-step. The one thing I hate to do is proposals. I will play games all day long instead of getting it over. It is a necessary evil and I have to buckle down and get it done. That is my dilemma for today. I must get it finished.
The proposal is blocked out, but needs a little fine tuning. I even have a multi-published author who will read it. I need to get it finished. So, here I am with my second cup of coffee, with chocolate-caramel creamer, and doing everything except what I need to do most.
Okay, today is the day! I will get that proposal finished!
