Last year, I thought up a children's story for my daughter Gabby. She was five at the time, but I still have not finished the story, because I'm stuck on how to illustrate it. I have no artistic talent when it comes to drawing or painting.

Yesterday, I got a great idea for another children's story to write for my 3 year old daughter Bella. Again, I am faced with the problem of how to illustrate it.

I am going to try to get my husband to set aside some time to try and illustrate the children's stories, because, unlike me, he does have some talent in that area.

I just wish I could get these stories and illustrations finished in time for me to self-publish and buy them as Christmas gifts for my two girls.

The Procrastination Bug

I am supposed to be writing regularly in here, but the procrastinatin bug has bit me and I am having trouble doing even the smallest amount of writing lately.

We've all been bit by the procrastination bug from time to time. It's the curse of every writer.

So how do we get past it?
