Writing Something Hard

I usually know when I’ve got something difficult to write because my house is really clean.  In other words, I’ve resorted to cleaning as a form of procrastination.  But it’s more than that.  Cleaning the house is something I can control, it has a clear beginning and end, and it makes me feel that I’ve accomplished something.  Now to accomplish some writing…

  1. Funny Sashi that you mention cleaning the house as a procratination action before started to write..

Even though I have quite a lot of writing to post on my “soon to come” blog..

    If you ever have the time or inclination, I’d like you to drop by the forums of my noveling blog and write a little bit about procrastination. I think your thoughts would be useful to a lot of other writers out there.
