I'll admit it--I am a champion procrastinator. Sad, but true. Not in all areas of my life, mind you, but when it comes to writing, for some reason, I find all sorts of things to pull me away from the computer.
Funny, since it's what I love to do. I can't imagine my life without writing. Yet I sit down to write and suddenly I'm thinking of 70 other things I need to do. Some of it is legitimate. I have four kids, so things come up and pulls me away, no way around it. But when I find myself doing dishes or cleaning the fridge out instead of writing...something's not right. LOL
Even sadder, I don't know why I do it. I've tried psychoanalyzing myself time and time again and haven't come up with anything yet. I just have to work around it.
One way is setting goals for myself. I have a deal with a friend of mine--if I don't write a minimum of 1000 words a day, I owe her ten bucks. What can I say--money talks. And trust me, I don't want to pay out for every day I decide cleaning the grout in the bathroom looks like more fun than pecking away at the keyboard. ;-)
I know I'm not alone in my affliction. That's a tad comforting. LOL Maybe one day I'll figure out what my deal is. For now though, I'll just try to beat it the best I can.
Everyone have a great week. :)
