The Procrastination Station
If you're not familiar with Will Write For Chocolate, I recommend checking it out. Debbie Ridpath Ohi knows the writing life well. Sometimes I don't know whether to wince or laugh when I recognize myself in her comics.
I posted this particular comic because I am in the grips of some killer procrastination. First there was the hustle and bustle of wrapping up my day job. Another school year ended on Monday. I took a day or two to rest on my laurels. There was lots of sleeping, and a Bones DVD-fest.
Today, I should be tackling Revising Mr. Right. Instead, I cleaned the kitchen. Yeah, that's right. Nothing added to my word count. My latest WIP languishes, ignored, on my computer. But at least my cupboards are beautifully organized.
How do you procrastinate from writing? And how do you force yourself back to the desk?
