Procrastination – why do we do it?
As a writer, I’m all too familiar with procrastination. Even when my mind is brimming with ideas, I’ll do almost anything rather than sit down at the computer and write. Playing spider solitaire is my greatest weakness – it’s so addictive. Every time I start to play a game, I swear to myself it’ll just be the one and then I’ll get on with my latest wip – yeah right!
Instead I’ll circle around the computer, like a demented shark, looking for anything else to do. Why is that, I wonder? After all, writing is my raison detre – my reason for being. I’m never happier than when I’ve got a story down, or progressed to another chapter in a new novel.
Yet still I’ll tackle the most mundane of tasks, instead of knuckling down.
Sometimes I drive myself crazy 😀
