    I had grand plans for this rainy weekend. Write, write, write. Did I? Well, sort of. I now am up to something like 15 unpublished hubs, 13 of which are at least started. A few of those are almost done.

    I'd start working, and then hit the forums. I'd start writing again, and then take the dogs for a walk. Try my hand at a hub one more time, and then vacuum the rugs (which were already vacuumed, thankyouverymuch). It was so bad, I was even calling up friends I hadn't spoken to in ages just so I wouldn't have to write, although all I really wanted to do was write!

    How do I get focused? HEEEEELLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!

      You don't! lol.  I am the grand master of procrastination.  I even wrote a one hit wonder about it... really it would be a hit if I would record it already. lol.

      No seriously, when it comes to writing, if you aren't feeling it then don't do it.  Otherwise you get a bunch of boring crap.  At least that is what happens to me when I write and don't feel like it. big_smile

    here's a semi-serious reply. I saw a t-shirt, on the back it said "top ten reasons I procrastinate" and underneath it said "1.",

    but moving along.. two-words - post-it notes! 2x2 inch. on the cabinet door for coffee cups. Can't miss seeing them. Won't allow myself to remove then until task is done.

    Granted, the door does sometimes look like a grocery store bulletin board, but eventually I get so tired of seeing them that I actually accomplish something.

      That sounds like something I would've done for my Mom who had Alzheimers! I don't forget -- I just procrastinate! Post-it notes aren't going to cut it for me. I'm a professional procrastinator. (Hey, maybe I can monetize it....)

    From a dark corner a soft growl is heard followed by a soft rasping chuckle. The creature emerges, its red blood shot sleep deprived eyes gaze around the forums.

    The creature is hungry. Its stomach rubs against its spine like sharp claws of anguish. It must feed. The time has come as it always does.

    Drool drips from its twisted lips as it begins to feed on the hubbers who are trolling the forums instead of writing hubs.

    Witness the dawn of the Procrasti-demon.
