|How I Live Now|
And, yet, I couldn't let myself curl up with my iPad watching Netflix. I had enough work guilt to keep me from that. Plus I was saving the iPad and Netflix in case I got sick.
Write Every Day?...Not When You Can Procrastinate Productively
You may recall that last week I discussed the unrealistic and exclusionary insistence that writers write every day. I listed some work-every-day possibilities for writers that weren't writing. This week I've been reminded, as well, of productive procrastination. Productive procrastination is working on tasks that may not be the task you should be working on but will produce something for you.
So for the last two days instead of writing fiction, I've been working on
- blog posts
- transferring notes for a blueprint/outline to a computer file
- researching a new market for a submission
- working on a submission (which I haven't completed because the publication requires so much you'd think I was applying for some kind of government grant)
- renewing my SCBWI membership
