Procrastination is the last refuge left to those chronically bereft of ideas, I realise. No, that is not a modest attempt at self-effacement, that is a confession. After making grandiose plans of gushing like a sink-without-a-stopper, all I had was a clogged brain for more than two months.

If making a beginning is tough, making a beginning twice is totally excruciating.

Reading blogs of journos really gives me an inferiority complex.

The number of times I had to look up the MS Word's Thesaurus while reading your post was not funny.

The Thesaurus did not have the word 'effacement', thanks to Microsoft ;-) MS Encarta Dictionary in MS Words Research Pane gave me the following definition and saved my day:

"behave humbly: reflexive verb to act in an inconspicuous manner, especially because of shyness or modesty"

The bright side is that I can derive a sadistic pleasure out of unleashing such words to the unsuspecting readers of my business emails who are unexposed to the ways of your elite journalistic circles :-)

I don't feel all that guilty since I follow the dictum, "Procrastinate now. Do not delay it."
