Procrastination. . .

I mentioned in the first blog how I tend to procrastinate, the ol' putting off until next Monday what I should've done two months ago.  And there are so many ways to lollygag.  When I was in college, my favorite was housework.  Homework?  Studying for quizzes/tests/finals?  Hey, what's more righteous than doing dishes?  That other stuff can wait until I do laundry, dust under the bed and rearrange my furniture.

Nowadays, my procrastination is a little more subtle than busting suds and chasing dust bunnies.  There are emails to to check and respond to, errands to run, books to read (research, right?), and websites to visit (Facebook is becoming rather insidious).  There's even this blog. . .


Anything to avoid what I should be doing, which is discovering what mischief Rabbit has gotten himself into this time.

Ah well, at least I don't procrastinate at tax time.  Much.


  1. Ms. Freeman can I say a heartfelt welcome back! I've read the 1st two books over and over and I've googled your name at least once a month over the past couple of years. I am SO pleased that the series will be continued.
    Do you know when/if the books will be available either for the Kindle or other electronic format?
    Thank you so much.

  2. Hi Jazz! As far as I know, there aren't any current plans for Kindle or audio books or anything else like that. If that ever changes, I'll post that there.

  3. I share Jazz happyness in discovering your blog and knowing that more books are to come! I really appreciated your previous two books and I've been rereading them many tims during these last two years!

  4. I would just like to start of with the obligatory lip service of: I love your books, thank you, thank you, thank you... and I'm looking forward to Shadow's Past very much.

    Okay... now that that is done, on to the ACTUAL comment. :)

    Your post reminds me a great deal of an essay written on Structured Procrastination (you can easily find the website of the same name). Basically, we procrastinators will do EVERYTHING else instead of working on the the ONE thing that is most important for use to actually be doing at the moment. The writer of the essay mentions some tricks on how to use this behavior to our advantage (I haven't gotten around to implementing them yet, but I intend to). Anyway, I just thought I should pass along this information, in case it may help get books four and five out so I can read them to my son in the next few years.
