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 I now am up to something like 15 unpublished hubs, 13 of which are at least started.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.
I guess the best way to help you is not to respond to this thread but here goes anyway
You can come and vacuum my place... lol There's always a tomorrow!
omg Irohner are you my twin!!!!
This week starting tomorrow Im gonna get really tough on myself and make one day ,say Tuesday n make it a No Forum day :

Ditto Ditto Ditto
OK Kiwi sister, Tuesday it is!
NO FORUMS! NO VACUUMS! NO DOG WALKING (okay...well maybe once or twice or I'll not only be hitting the vacuum, but the rug cleaner as well....)
mtsi, YOU'RE ON!
Youre welcome to join us on a 'f.f day AE msti is gonna have a ball posting for us
LOL, can we put a bet on this? I'd like to join you but I don't think I'll be able to write at all. Tuesday will be a busy day for me . Anyways, good luck EK, irohner, and the other hubbers who will join you. It will be a quiet forum without you that's for sure .
Now that should be fun!!! I need will power, grrrrrrr but I will try with all of my might!
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.
ohhhh that was hilarious ,my hubby is worse than me and it drives me nutssss ,but oh well
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.
HEY Procrastination is my best friend. How do you know him? lmao

Hi All,just to let you know I am in hospital tomorrow for an operation to remove some broken bone fragments from my right elbow joint. This means I will be in hospital overnight, plus I may not be able to type easily for at least a couple of weeks, so please don't worry about me if I seem to be...

How do you procrastinate with your serious writing? What do you do instead?What obstacles do you put in your own way in order to put off your serious writing? How cunning are these delaying tactics? How destructive are they?

How do you stop from eating while writing?So I just went to the refrigerator for the 3rd time this morning. I guess I think that's where the inspiration is kept! Help, how do you stop this insanity
