Procrastination, thou are an ugly wart on a donkey's hind end...
Is procrastination ever a good thing? Generally, I don't think so but I hate wasting time so I'm hard on myself. This winter has been one long bout of procrastination for me, writing-wise, and I'm not happy about it.
I did discover a silver lining inside the procrastination station the other day, though, as my train came to a stop and requested ice cream before moving on. What if I avoided what I should be doing by doing something else that was worthwhile?
I know what you're thinking…well, duh! But really, it's not that simple. I wanted to veg and watch some idiot movie. Instead, I wrote and scheduled all twenty-six freakin' days' worth of A to Z April Challenge posts! Yay!
The secret to motivation? It DIDN'T need to happen yet. Not until April, in fact. That made it 100% a FUN THING TO DO, instead of OMG IT'S NOT DONE YET!
Maybe I've found the key.
Do you ever trick yourself out of procrastinating?
And now I have the pleasure of revealing the cover for Beyond The Binding, the companion eBook to the Composers For Relief Album. It's a beauty!
Embark on an exciting journey “Beyond the Binding” of the imagination with 29 authors from across the globe, in a groundbreaking collaboration where music meets fiction. Surrender to soaring compositions as they surge through the veins of every story, capturing the triumphant pulse of the notes in heart pounding sci fi, enchanting fantasy and gripping slices of realism.
All proceeds of the Composers for Relief album and Companion Collection ebook will go to Gawad Kalinga (“give care”) and GVSP (Gualandi Volunteer Service Programme), to support the relief efforts for victims of the deadliest natural disaster in Philippines’ history, Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).
Ebook available from Amazon, Amazon UK, iTunes, B&N, Kobo, Sony, Diesel & Smashwords. (More links added as they go live)
