I may know nothing, but sometimes I know some things.
Writing can be demanding because it involves total, complete solitude. I find it especially challenging being an Extroverted Individual. Scratch that— Extroverted Procrastinator.
Even now, for instance. Yes, I am writing, but I am not writing the task I’m supposed to be writing. I am successfully procrastinating as we speak.
And so, I’ve discovered some wonderful tips to put off writing time when all you want to do is play with your friends.
Step 1. Do every possible menial task around your apartment that you’ve been averting for days, such as:
- The dishes
- Fill out the census
- Pay your bills
- Cook yourself dinner
Step 2. Paint your nails. How are you supposed to type away if your nails are wet?
Step 3. Consume wine. Red or white, your choice. This of course could occur before, during or after Steps 1 and 2.
Step 4. Research upcoming concerts you’d like to attend, such as Fun.
Step 5. Pout because the show is sold out.
I’ve currently accomplished Steps 1-5, and now find myself face to face with the most difficult decision yet: to clean my room or to write.
