Whenever I have work I have to do, or a goal I’ve set for myself to meet, inevitably I will procrastinate down to the last possible minute. Anyone else out there like me? What are your favorite methods of procrastination? Here are mine:
PACMAN. Oh my goodness, I love playing Pacman online. Here’s a free site: Pacman
Facebook. I know, its so sad to stalk your friends and people you haven’t talked to in years, but still its a helluva lot of fun.
The forums on TNBW.
Re-reading my writing. For some reason rather than doing any actual writing, I will spend half-hours at a time reading over chapters I’ve just finished. It’s not so I get to know the story better. It’s because I think I’m going to suck at the next thing I write. That’s really why I procrastinate! I’m afraid that the next thing I’m going to put down on the paper is going to be so horrible that I’ll ruin everything that’s come before it!
How to prevent that fear? I don’t know. Keep writing, I guess. Put it out there in the universe. Realize that something is going to suck at some point and that maybe something else is going to be phenomenal. And that when something sucks it can be fixed. Or I can at least attempt to fix it.
Oh, I forgot a new thing I’ve been doing to procrastinate.
