Procrastination Ahoy!

It turns out that I have the worlds shortest attention span!

In my infinite devilish wisdom I have decided to write a story/ screen play which has loose connections to my life (the main character is also a redhead).

However it seems that I am rubbish at finishing stuff. Well in this case I am still on the first page!

So far I have looked for screen writing websites and tips, cooked, cleaned, washed up, chatted to friends, learnt how to compress and upload music files, attempted research on New York, discovered what the Research icon on my IE does, researched loads of different words, discovered what nepotism is, gone to the beach, read a book, gone for a swim, made a fruit salad, read some blogs, checked imdb for old movies I can refer back to then forgotten to write them down, got sidetracked and ended up reading the trivia for a load of Kevin Smith movies, relooked up Kevin Smith on imdb so I could add that link and millions more that I cannot remember but will probably end up noting down in an edit as another way of putting off the writing.

I think that is quite an impressive waste of time.

I am now remember a movie I watched where a guy was always trying to figure out ways of doing things in the shortest possible time. It is highly likely that I will now have to spend more time trying to figure out what that movie was.

So it seems that anyone who would wish to read/ watch any work by me would have to somehow notify their great grand children. It may be complete by then!
