December 2 Prompt
Prompt: Writing. What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it?
Distract and procrastinate.
Aren’t those two of the most powerful tools in a writer’s bag of tricks?
In the thirty minutes or so since I started writing this post , I’ve chosen and fiddled with my choice of background music, flipped in and out of Twitter a few times, gotten Sean a snack and written some truly awful material.
I’m pretty sure I’m distracting myself from answering the hard questions here. Next I’ll procrastinate on actually answering the question.
I’m not so sure I can eliminate distraction and procrastination from my life completely, but I can certainly try to control it better.
How do you control your levels of procrastination and distraction while writing?
