...Other than farting around on these here forums?

I'm cruising Youtube to try to find the perfect music to finish up this swamp fantasy.  Right now, the soundtrack to Neverending Story is in the lead, but I can't really be sure until I pore through another 100 or so vids.

I figure about 8:00 tonight I'll develop a little urgency.

Yay procrastination!

Rearranging my bedroom. No joke.

Amazon Prime Day brought a new bed just into my price range, so I've been cleaning and rearranging to prepare for its arrival.

I swear, my house will never be cleaner than it gets during these contests. LOL

Feeling a little better about my story today, though, so maybe I'll stop procrastinating so much.

Well, I am in the middle of a huge novel and come to the painful realization that I need to do several drafts of an outline. I am doing fiction prompts (including this one), short story revision, music videos, and this forum. In short, anything I can think of.
But it's the truth even if it didn't happen.

Well, I'm here - so there's that.
I've finished draft #2, which got rid of *most* of my extra 435 words, and completely changed the ending for the better.
Waiting to hear back from any of my 3 betas, and...avoiding rewriting it, though I know I must.
Next up: errands!
Then that last terrified rewrite before I hit "Send" and instantly regret it*

*Assuming this to be true based on past experience

Waiting on betas, watching this forum on one screen, and watching Royal Pains on the other.

Painting. As in painting a room not a creative masterpiece. I still have 140 words to cut and I don't want to give any of them up.

Re- watching the last few episodes of season 6 of Game of Thrones while staring at my story hoping a few words will just run away on their own.

Listening to "Whoever Fights Monsters" by Robert Ressler to drown out the cacophony of my three boys, thinking about vegetables and puzzling over why my table feels sticky. I finished my story at noon yesterday, but now I realize I probably should have spent more time fiddling with it. Oh well.
