No more procrastination – just do it

For a long time now, I have been saying I was going to write my book but never actually getting down to it. Well, I decided the procrastination had to stop. I had to commit and I had to become accountable. The book is going to be about my journey and it will be dedicated to my late dad. As today, 19th January would have been his 92nd birthday, what better date than that to start.

I set a time mid afternoon to start as I had other things to finish first. Even that didn’t go according to plan and I was running late! Suddenly I found my self saying I’m late, I’m late for a very important date! (From Alice in Wonderland) Suddenly lots of fond memories starting flooding through about my dad. Alice was amongst his favourites. He was even a member of The Lewis Carroll Society. I did manage to settle down and get started eventually. I made copious notes and started to recall many of the incidents and adventures that had shaped my journey. I felt an amazing feeling – as though my late dad were present . So I am on task at last. The work has begun and I look forward to the days ahead as I complete the story of my journey so far. I know I am going to enjoy the experience although writing a book was never an original plan. My life has been a real roller coaster and one I never thought others would be interested to share but in recent years I have mixed with so many who say I have a story to tell . So they have persuaded me to put pen to paper. To stop the procrastination and complete the task. Watch this space…………………
