Confessions of procrastination

Postby xylene » Wed Jul 17, 2013 9:46 am

Obviously I'm not on my own here. Everyone seems to come up with other occupations when they try to make themselves sit down and write, and I thought it might be funny to share the strange things you find yourself doing when you just can't come up with anything.

Today, for example, I cleaned all the light switches in the house. And I do mean each and every single one, including flipping the switches up and down so I got all the dirt around the edges. I'm completely serious. Beat that!

I've spent an hour this morning sawing off the end of a triangular glue stick to make a tiny zero-gravity cup for my MC to give his tiktaalik passengers some water - just to prove that the container can be used that way. (According to NASA, water will run down a sharp internal angle in zero gravity.) Now, having done the fun part, I need to put BIC and write about using it - the tiny cup, not my butt. :roll:

I wrote a little poem about procrastination. Here it is:

When my Maker made me what ingredient did He
Omit from my self and leave up on the shelf?
'Cause my head - full of dreams and impossible schemes -
Has led me through life, ...er,

What rhymes with life? Strife? wife? Um, I'll finish this tomorrow. ;)

Thank you for the suggestion, Elibet, but the last line where I'm searching for a rhyme is supposed to be part of the poem. I didn't make that very clear, did I? :?

Writing is just about the only area of my life where I don't procrastinate. I'm a champion procrastinator at just about anything else I do, but writing is something I really enjoy sitting down and doing. It's writing, in fact, that makes me procrastinate so much in other areas.
