Since time immemorial there have been procrastinators, people like the Dalai Lama, Victor Hugo, Herman Melville and Frank Lloyd Wright. Margaret Atwood, even.

Common household names, I know.

Victor Hugo is the great French poet and novelist who wrote “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”

Margaret Atwood, Canada’s most celebrated writer, struggles every day with procrastination.

And Frank Lloyd Wright is the famous American architect. Procrastination was one of his demons. He had other demons, designing complex structures on a mountainside, not being one of ’em.

Anyway, I only mention these names so you know I’m in good company, me being one of the Great Procrastinator of Our Time.
