I’m told even Ninjas procrastinate, but I don’t believe it.
Angela WRITE Now is not a procrastinator by nature, putting things off gives her anxiety, anxiety gives her heart burn, and it’s never worth it. But sometimes I enjoy working at a less frantic pace, and usually it looks like this:
I don’t believe that twitter= procrastination. I tweeted my way trough the 3 day novel contest and not only finished, but had the desire to do it all over again this year. I understand some of you don’t know when it call it quits though, and this blog is for you.
Every writer knows what they do while they blow something else off. Be it Twitter, Bejeweled, or organizing their twenty-seven different colors of post-its.(Yes I did count thanks) The key to cutting yourself off is in your attitude as a writer. See this post to get your attitude adjustment.
Self control is your number one tool as writer. With out it, you have nothing but a desire you can’t act on as you lack the ability to make yourself write. As I have stated before though, you can control this by learning routine. It takes just two weeks to make something habit. Small changes can make a big impact on the product you turn out.
Think about something you would like to take two weeks to change about yourself, or who you are as a writer. Post here what that is, and if you achieve your goals I will enter you to win a prize. (Here is a hint, it involves books) One winner for my two week challenge. I will give everyone until the 14th of September to let us know what you achieved, and on the 15th I will post the winner along with a big announcement!
Put this button on your blog so we know who is taking 2 weeks to be strong!
