      Sometimes I restrict myself and stay clear of the forums and stall (aka creative procrastination) by having some hub-reading time.  That can (doesn't always work) be more motivating to write hubs.

    Same here, I spent so much time playing on here, reading, writing, reading, reading, and reading that I missed the deadline for the co-op I wrote bragging about! Twisted priorities here

    LMAO! I was actually thinking about posting here today asking the HP team to ban me from the forums for life. I'm spending more time here than on my hubs!
