Two years ago I was struggling a lot with my mental health. In September I was at the end of my therapy cycle and I think my procrastination was rather my mind readjusting to the newly learned tools to deal with my past and just getting back into normal again.
But I have also learned since then that procrastination isn’t that bad. You need a break every now and then. For me, it was more the worrying about the procrastination that prevented me from writing. Today, I do not worry so much about it. I have learned to follow my gut which tells me when to write and when to rest and play. Both is important.
But what did I think in 2014 about it?
How has your writing been in the last week? Have you had brilliant new ideas or are you bored with what you are doing? Have you achieved what you wanted or are you lagging behind?
I’m procrastinating. Big time. I could do so much more if I’d get my buttocks up and just get going but I can’t be bothered. Well, I am bothered with other things. Refreshing French. Playing with the little one. Reading. Yes, reading and what good fun that is. Drinking buckets full of tea.
All good things to do. They just get in the way with the writing. Well, never mind. I’ll get back into it. Always did, always will.
And what about you? What is your favourite procrastination and how do you get out of it?
