You know you’re a writer when you’ve found a million ways to procrastinate #writer #writing

Guilty of reading and daydreaming 🙂

G.L. Cromarty

You know you’re a writer when you’ve found a million ways to procrastinate…here are a few tips to help you spot the procrastination pitfalls.

Reading really is the perfect excuse for any writer because you can convince yourself that it is actually helping you to become a better writer. Yes, it certainly is, but sometimes you do need to put the book down and get back to your keyboard and write.

A Funny Little Coincidence

So, I reblogged a post yesterday that listed some funny responses for writers when asked how their book is coming along. And what happens to me at work today? One of my coworkers asked me this morning how I’m coming along with my writing. I was tempted to say something witty, like in the post from yesterday, but instead I just said I wasn’t getting as much done as I would have liked and have been trying to get back to working on my WIP after getting distracted with publishing and trying to promote my short story collection, Chronicles of Riss, and by life in general.

And I did actually work on my WIP for a few minutes this evening and got another 100 words done. A little progress, then. Every little bit helps, right?
