What have you been putting off doing? Why?

So many things I don’t feel like writing About it. Would be too long and painful. It’s something that gets me depressed. Deeply depressed. I’m neglecting many important things in my life, always awaiting for that perfect moment never arrives. I’m especially sorry about one thing. I stopped working in a book I was writing about my father because I was too moved and I couldn’t handle my emotions properly. He died several years ago but the wound is open as it happened yesterday.

Daily Prompt: Procrastination.

    The time will be right. Have you thought of separating yourself from it by putting it into the third person and using your feelings but through another? I did this with something I couldn’t handle and it was possible to write about it when before it reduced me to tears.x

    Olga, I hope you find the way to finish the book and it will be a way to reconnect with your father.
