The Liebster Award Continues!

Standard

This post is long overdue.

All through grade school, my teacher’s scrawled these notes at the bottom of my report cards.

“Tracy is always eager to help. But Tracy must learn not to procrastinate.”

As a kid, I never knew what procrastinate meant. And I was too afraid to ask my parents because it sounded like a swear word.

Pro-cras-ti-nate. Does sound kind of crass, doesn’t it?

So for fun I thought I’d look up that “crass” word.

According to Merriam-Webster’s on-line dictionary, http://www.Merriam-Webster.com, to procrastinate is to put off intentionally the doing of something that should be done.

That’s me. I love to procrastinate. And it appears I’m not alone. The word procrastinate is currently in the top 10% of look ups on Merriam-Webster.com. And here is how they used the word in a sentence.

“He procrastinated and missed the submission deadline.”

Well, I missed my own imposed deadline. I never got around to officially passing on the Liebster Blog Award. Better late than never.

Do you hear the drum roll?

Meet Brenda Visser. We connected at Write Canada 2011. She is a gifted writer, who took a step of faith and quit her job to become a full-time writer. Oh…I envy you, Brenda. In a good way, of course.

Brenda has always loved to write. She says, “It is where I can express myself most fully, without interruption, and hopefully with some thought.”

Please stop by and visit Brenda’s blog – The Write Way. You can find Brenda at: http://www.brendavisser.wordpress.com

Happy New Year everyone. I hope 2012 is off to a great start.
