A little while back, I came to the inevitable conclusion that I can’t put off editing Grotesque any longer. It’s been years since I took a real look at it. Aside from Hellbound, Grotesque is the only decent book I’ve ever written. And judging by how difficult it’s been to get editors to pay attention to Hellbound, it is becoming increasingly apparent that I am going to need a Plan B. This isn’t surprising. It just means that I’m in for a lot of hard work.
The problem is that when I am faced with hard work, I like to retreat into my little Bubble of Happiness where there are Disney movies and warm blankets and Skittles. The Bubble protects me from all my adult responsibilities.
I am really good at procrastinating.
For instance…I’m writing this blog post right now. That does not count as editing. Also I drew that picture of the Bubble of Happiness.
And have you heard of Netflix?? It should be called Procrastination…flix.
So I’m having a rough time of it. But…I have done a little. It’s not enough, but it’s a start.
The reason I’m saying any of this is…well…some other projects are going to have to be put on hold. No more of my chapter updates for that other book I was writing. Although I have some good ideas for it. I’m still going on with the Support Hellbound Initiative, of course. The more support I can gather, the better. It’s never too late to join in!
But for now I must buckle down. I must.
I wonder what’s on Netflix?
Hey look I drew a comic!
