I have way too many unfinished projects in my life, and because of my rather irritating habit of not completing anything (known as procrastination) I have decided to put the scrapbook project on the back burner.
First and foremost, I am a writer. This is what writers do, they come up with a thousand and one ideas in their heads yet they rarely go the distance and see it through. They even come up with a multitude of non-writing ideas as an excuse to not complete their writing tasks. This has been a recurring issue in my life, and now I am at the stage where I know my personal excuses and diverting ideas are not going to get my novel and my family history projects completed.
Don't get me wrong, I love Nino. I will always love Nino. He has been a good distraction from the pain/hurt/frustration/loneliness in my real life. But the show must go on, I need to finish my still outstanding writing projects. I need to do this for myself. Only then can I make a start on the scrapbook. I know Nino will understand, and he would say good luck!
NB. This post serves as a not-so-subtle reminder to myself. All opinions about writers are my own.
