Another Wednesday, another lesson. I have to say, I kind of use these to rant sometimes. So, naturally, I love them. Of course, I hope they help you, too. This week, we’re looking at procrastination.
I know, procrastination seems like it belongs more in The Trouble With Writing section, but bear with me. We’re going to be talking about NOT procrastinating.
We’re all bad with procrastination. Admit it, you procrastinate all the time, don’t you? I know I do, and I actually like writing.
For example, I procrastinated a lot on Days of the Kill edits, and that’s no good. I have a deadline to get to. Today. And I still have a couple hours worth. Along with a ton of homework. I’m just full of good news. I know.
So, how do we not procrastinate? Well, I find rewards help. If I get so much done a day, I have a right to be unhealthy. It doesn’t do much for my figure, but hey, that just means it’s a really good motivator.
There’s something for everyone. I don’t know what works for everyone, but hey, there’s a lot of things to help a writer actually get things done on time.
Procrastination is a big problem, and we always have to be on the lookout for ways to not procrastinate. I’ll be stressing over getting Days of the Kill done today…
Don’t end up in my position, though I’m sure you have at one point or another. Whether it’s for school or writing or whatever, everyone procrastinates. It’s time for that to stop. Find your motivator. It’s out there somewhere. I promise.
