A public diary on how I’m beating procrastination and finally writing (and publishing) a book – Diary Day 13



Day 13 was a fun day… thankfully, it is not Friday 13th ;-)…

Last night at around midnight and all through the night, the fire alarm kept going off in my building – no fire – but it kept going off regularly every half hour, then every hour and so on, aaaaaall night, yes, that’s right.
The fire brigade cannot and will not come to silence your alarm, and the out-of-hour engineer was a few hours away and couldn’t fix it anyway, so that was my night.
You can imagine how awake I was this morning: my first instincts were to go to sleep; however, I was due to go out for a meeting and was expecting phone calls for my business, so that option was out.
I tried gallons of coffee (a tad more than usual), but I couldn’t concentrate on writing, so I chilled and watched TV, done my calls and the meeting.

I am determined to write, though, so here I am now putting in the time and free handwriting for at least an hour, if I can more: I’m determined to finish and publish this book for 22 September, and so it will be. And that’s the end of Diary Day 13.
