Writers procrastinate on writing so much that the term "writer" is probably a misnomer. We should be called "putting things off-ists".
Why is it so hard to focus on writing for most people? Or other creative work, for that matter?
It seems no matter our best intentions, it's our lot in life to put off writing by checking email or Facebook or Twitter, doing other busy-work, chatting with someone, anything but the actual writing.
I've figured out a few things that work. It's my writer's rehabilitation program, and I offer it here to all of you in hopes that it will help:
These are small steps, but they work. Now get to writing.
Habit Course Sale
On a different note, my partners and I are offering the self-study version of The Habit Course for $100 off the usual price, until Monday (Dec. 3).
It’s a great course for learning to form any habit, at a really good price.
Note: This sale might seem counter to the Buy Nothing Until 2013 Challenge, and honestly it is. I hesitated to share the sale with all of you, but decided that not everyone is doing the challenge, so if you aren’t, you might be interested in The Habit Course. If you’re doing the challenge, feel free to skip it until January!
