The Art of Procrastinating

I never thought of myself as much of a procrastinator until I started writing.  I’ll find any excuse not to sit in front of the computer and WRITE.  Forget something like dinner.  Any little thing on my computer will do just fine.  Emails are a perfect delaying tactic, and if I start working on my web site, well, I can tell you, I’m not going to get any writing done for that day. I’ll even stare at the screen forever before I get a word done.
When this web site started up, I thought ‘perfect’.  I can delay my writing just a bit longer by checking out the site on a daily basis.  As I write this, I’m delaying my writing just a bit longer.  It’s amazing that if I delay long enough, evening’s arrived and I’m so brain dead by that time, I can’t think of a word to write.
Strange part, I can do this day after day.
