Modern procrastination is the art of getting all your schtuff together for what you want to do, then call meetings with yourself to decide on what you should do next.
"I think you need to do this first, then that second, and that other thing third."
"No, you need to do that first, this third and that other thing second."
"No, you need to do all three at the same time. Multi-tasking is the new in-thing, doncha know."
"Make it stop!!!!"
Obviously, some people just can't be taught. In my case, a failure to communicate is probably a good thing, since I spent the weekend doing the following, thus permanently adjourning the meeting:
1} Uploading my novella to Smashwords and making it available for preorder (doing a May 13th release date) on IBooks, B&N, and Kobo.
2} Designing postcards for said novella. A designer I am not, but it has to be done.
3} Completing a very small display for work. One that will not get me into trouble, thus it will have no pics and no prices.
4} Upload a copy with the US Copyright office.
5} As much as it pains me to do, a little advertising on Facebook.
6} Blab about it on my blogs without turning my readers off.
And that, is how I spent my weekend, except for the statewide DNS interruption inflicted by Frontier Communications (the geniuses who bought AT&T's cable/internet/phone service here Connecticut) that put me behind for about four hours, give or take).
How 'bout you? How was your weekend? Did you accomplish what you set out to do, or did you get sidetracked by stuff that was beyond your control?
