What I’m doing?

Being an aspiring writer in possession of some free time and an internet connection, the main reason I don’t write more is that I procrastinate. I do other things in the time I could use for writing. I’m entirely responsible for that, and I know how and why I’m wasting time. It’s because procrastinating is easy and can be quite pleasant.

If you’re also a writer, you know how much easier it is to research or plot my story than to write it, how much easier is it to read (or indeed write) about writing than to actually write? If you’re not a writer, it is A LOT easier. It’s very easy to get discouraged, to believe my writing won’t ever amount to anything, etc… Again, if you’re a writer you’ll know the drill. I have a fairly short attention span, and my inclination tends to be to try lots of different things, so when I start thinking my writing dreams are doomed, it can be hard to get back on the horse.

I’m not making excuses for myself, I’m laying out facts. I want to become a better and more prolific writer, so I want to try and get a more logical approach to my writing. Try to see when and where I’m more productive, what’s helpful to me, etc… so I can take all these things and apply them to finishing my damn book.
