I’ve been all the way through the desk editor’s comments on the proofs of ICE SHOCK. The ms is covered with handwritten new bits and changes. I only have ten very minor points to address from the proof reader.
Then it’s type up my list of page changes and down to the post office with it.
Meanwhile, the last chapter of Joshua 3 (current title ZERO MOMENT) is planned, a quarter-written and waiting to be finished.
I could do both things today. So why can’t I even get started?
Completion anxiety. (Hey, it’s a real thing…)
I’m not normally a big procrastinator but as I hurtle towards the finish line, time and again, mentally, the brakes scream into action and I slam to a halt.
Today, instead of working, I want to do something else. For example, spend the day thinking about muffin based-humour. (Hey, it’s a real thing.)
Here are my favourite bits of muffin-based humour.
1. The Muffin-Top episode of Seinfeld.
2. Ross Noble, standup comedian, talks about finding human faces in muffin tops.
3. Bob Kelso and the muffin (Scrubs)
Later today I’ll put a photo of my Starbucks muffin on this post. I’ll try to get one with a face.
“Now there IS a face. Next muffin.”
