The following is a section from Adrianna Buonarroti’s blog that I simply had to re-post.
“I am the world’s worst procrastinator. Except for Mindie Kniss. She’s worse than me. But she doesn’t think of it as procrastinating. She just thinks of it as living. Which makes me worse, I think. I feel horribly anxious about it. I even feel anxious about Mindie’s procrastinatory behavior. I feel better having discovered that Annie Dillard is a pretty good procrastinator herself. (This sounds like something a homeopath could use to figure out a remedy for this quirk. You know, worse when thinking about Mindie’s procrastination. Better when thinking about Annie Dillard. Any takers?)”

So I am worse than the worst? I can’t argue with that. Case in point: residency reviews are due tomorrow and I haven’t even started. I mean I have not written a single sentence on any of the mind-numbing (and simultaneously mind-expanding) talks we had during our low-residency MFA program at Pacific University. Every day since we left campus I have thought about starting, but more than likely I’ll begin tomorrow.
