A writer knows that procrastination goes hand in hand with writing. The greater the procrastination, the greater the writing breakthrough that is on the horizon. I’m due for a good one today.
Now that’s what I can productive procrastination!
This is what all I got done today before sitting down to write:
- Started laundry, including any couch coverings clinging with dog hair.
- Bleached bathrooms (COVID-19).
- Cleaned bottoms of 4 pairs of shoes that had dog crap on them (these shoes had been sitting for MONTHS, discarded in the laundry room).
- Picked up dog crap in yard.
- Washed windows and sills.
- Swept floor in office.
- Clipped and emery-boarded fingernails and toenails (which I detest).
- Wrote this post.
Writing is a different kind of action verb
Ever notice how of all those past tense verbs, write is not one. Writing is different. All of the other items I did are more physical. However, I was thinking about writing. I thought about writing – another non-ed verb: thought.
NOW, I’m ready to write.
