Sound of Paper: 5 Areas I’m Procrastinating On

This is part of my work in the Julia Cameron Artist’s Way series. The work this time is from the book the Sound of Paper. The responses are self-examinations and assessments based on work through a daily series of exercises. While I do keep some material offline as it can be very personal and jarring, I often opt to be fairly open about my experiences, both positive and negative.

I’m actually not much of a procrastinator. I’m naturally too anxious to let stuff totally slide. This is not to say that there isn’t stuff that lingers a LONG time. Especially lately, as I’ve had the whole back/chair/hamstring debacle to deal with.

  1. Right this instant, I’m procrastinating on doing the yoga I know damn well I need to do if I want to keep working in general.
  2. I haven’t gotten too far into my annual declutter. This is partly because, thanks to previous years, there’s less to do than before. Also, the early spring combined with my closet collapse has made heavy closet-editing throughout the year necessary. Still, there’s stuff I should get out of here by July.
  3. My office could use a serious cleanup. Now that I’ve more or less shut down the perfumery for the time being, I’m essentially hoarding. I really don’t have the time to do the product photos, etc. Not right now.
  4. I need to suck it up and do a home show/clearance sale. I know I could just donate a lot of the stuff that I’ve made to other causes, but part of me stubbornly wants to recoup at least some of the loss.
  5. I also need to update my author’s website, and my static pages on my personal blog. Just one of those to-dos that gets lost in the shuffle once in awhile.
