A Hopeless Case Of Procrastination

08 Mar

My biggest problem with writing is procrastination.  I have many ideas for stories but I have yet to complete any recent work.  I blame the dog often for encouraging me away from writing, he looks at me with sad eyes and I leave my kitchen table to play with him.   In truth, it is not my dog, it’s any excuse not to write.  I am the procrastination queen and oh, I forgot to blame twitter too.   I sit there all prepared with my ideas and begin to type and sometimes I may complete 1000 words but mostly it is around 500 then my brain thinks of other things to do. I would really like to stop procrastinating and get on with finishing my stories and novel.  Is there any help out there for a procrastination queen? Am I a lost cause?  Perhaps some super glue on my chair would help.

    I have the same problem but with me its the cat distracting me or the sink full of pots, then my wardrobe needs sorting out & I really must re-organise my office space. You see its never ending,why can’t we just get on with the writing?

      Hi Heather,
      You are exactly right it is never ending. When I am in the zone I go on a roll and I can write for ages. It’s trying to get myself back to into it that is the problem. I will keep trying in the hope that I find an answer 🙂

    An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been conducting a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast due to the fact that I discovered it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this subject here on your blog.
