This Message Brought to You by Procrastination and Writer’s Block

Procrastination. As a writer (and human being), I know it fondly and freakishly.

Do not ask.

Do not ask.

However, it’s not just a writer’s thing. Everyone procrastinates. It’s human nature. If you say you don’t you’re a liar-liar-pants-on-fire. Or you’re just way too pure for me, so stop reading my blog RIGHT NOW.

I’ll bet even Hemingway wasted time doing other things.

Like boozin'.

Like boozin’.

Procrastination can be good. It can take the mind to another place; distract you until you’re ready to come back to the story, the problem or the kidnapping at hand.

And yet, while other, normal folk may go see a movie, frolic in the outdoors doing sporty-type related activity, or having fistfights with hobos in alleyways, as a writer my procrastination usually takes place in front of my computer. Doing everything in my power to avoided typing much needed words.

Tweet. Music mixes. Baby talk to my cats. Enough of this. I decided the time was ripe to make another video. And yes. I was procrastinating when I made it.

So crank up the volume and adjust your jockstrap because here is the stupid shit writerly procrastination is made of.

    “So crank up the volume and adjust your jockstrap because here is the stupid shit writerly procrastination is made of.” It’s a frigging refrigerator without the door, a bottle of IPA without the bottle opener and I just had tooth surgery and the dentist gave me no painkillers. It’s like playing bumper cars with no other cars in motion, a dildo without the batteries. I think you get that I get what I get your saying about the ———————————– WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

    It was a Saturday relief tennis elbow tendonitis morning.
    A wide range of clientele from the rich and the infamous-even once immune journalists have come to light.

    Broad mispulls Sharma high over square leg for a couple of times, elsewhere around the Northeast.

  • I am breathing deep and sharing the first line of my (currently) unpublished book - "The Ramblin' Hand of Sherry Anne." After rewriting 75% of my last draft in three months, edits are finally fucking finished and I feel calm and peaceful and light. Typically, I tend to not want to share for fear of failure BUT I am freaking psyched. No more white knuckling this novel. Here goes nothin'. #teasertuesday #amwriting #amediting #manuscript #writerlife #writer #writermama #novel #publishedorbust
