I needed to put in a good four or five hours on my rewrites today. I’d put in at least twice that amount  rewriting them in my head. So instead, I puttered around the house for as long as I could.  I did pretty much everything else I could do — including packing up all the Easter decorations.

With nothing else to delay the inevitable, I sat in my chair and gently warmed up to the idea of beginning my day’s writing.

With nothing else to delay the inevitable, I sat in my chair and gently warmed up to the idea of beginning my day’s writing.  I reshuffled my critique comments, straightened piles of papers and re-checked e-mails. That’s when I stumbled upon a shout out from storyfix.com (Larry Brooks) for Jennifer Blanchard’s site — procrastinatingwritersblog.com.  Kismet! A blog written with me in mind.

The fact this site exists at all validates that all writers procrastinate. The blog is jam-packed with resources, support, advice and motivation for all of us dawdling writers. And as I read the latest posts, I discovered  Jennifer is about to launch “Butt-In-Chair: A no-excuses writing productivity guide.” I can’t wait.

In the meantime, since it’s too early to put out the Fourth of July decorations, I’d better get back to writing.
