Aligning Two Journeys, Baths of the Past and Writer of the Present

Procrastination can be one of my major enemies, creating indecision and a tendency to drift. That has been my case, not in researching and writing my book, but in maintaining this blog to keep up with recording my progress. I'm an old-fashioned girl. I've been writing in my journal instead. Maybe my major problem with the blog has been that, until now, I've not been able to see the journey clearly.

In a similar way, the local Council displayed a similar inability to make the decision to build the baths back in the early 1900s. No one could see the finished product clearly enough to push
 decisions forward, enabling progress to happen.

Just as the Council were forced into making a decision, so I am now determined to have this blog reflect the progress of the story of the baths. The baths story and my writing story are finally aligned.

  1. Procrastination and perfectionism - two sides of the same coin, and the bane of a writer's existence. Glad to hear that you are still making progress on research and writing. I am at the stage where I have reams of stream of consciousness writing that I need to organize and polish. Somehow I thought that writing an autobiography would be easier, since I know the subject so well. Diligent journal writing would have served me well if I ever thought I might have anything interesting happening in my life to write about.
