Procrastinating on a Cloudy Day in Annapolis

It’s a crab weekend coming up, with a number of all-you-can-eat crab feasts in the region including the big Rotary crab feast at the U.S. Naval Academy Stadium. But with all this warm soggy weather, I’m not thinking positively about sitting outside picking crabs. In fact, when it turns gray, folks tend to become a tad grumpy and want to stay inside where there’s some cool air conditioning.
It does, however, lend itself to reading and writing, which happen to be two of my favorite activities. Although I do keep procrastinating on completing some of my editing chores.
When there are things I don’t want to do, I alternate them with things that are more fun such a crafting a story on a new topic I’ve never written about and learning something new, as opposed to revisiting something that has been written about before and checking research that has been done by another writer.
It is the first week in August and we just completed our September Eastern Shore magazine and the Annapolis magazine follows close behind while we work on the final touches for October and complete November’s content. Part of my brain is wrapped around pumpkin carving, piles of raked leaves, and the plans that go into Thanksgiving feasts. It’s an interesting reality on a hot summer’s day.
