At the Editor. Now what?

I handed over my manuscript to an editor a little while ago, thinking I’d have oodles of free time to do other stuff. But what have I been doing? Let’s see…

  • I read nine books, which is quite an improvement
  • Successfully avoided blogging 😉
  • Realized I spent too much time on social media and cut back a little
  • Did market research and decided self-publishing was a better bet for what I have to sell
  • My house is still dirty
  • I had a language learning crisis in which I had to switch curriculum and it killed my momentum, but I’m getting there
  • Beta read a little faster
  • Started a book cover and gave it to a designer to make pretty. I figure if editors use editors, I can use a designer, right?
  • Tried to make a synopsis five times, gave up and tried back cover copy five times. Gave up and wrote this blog

I feel like I should have an outline for another book by now, or finish my marketing plan, but I have to decide which to do first. Maybe I’ll write book reviews for a while and procrastinate some more!

How do you procrastinate from even your favorite activities? Why?
