The Procrastination Checklist


I'm starting a new plan: 90 Days to My Novel. I'm on the third day, and each day has little writing exercises to complete. Some of these exercises are going to get old if I try doing this with each book, but whatever. I'm doing my homework. Guess what is not yet involved in said homework: Actual writing on my work in progress.

I'm also completing daily writing prompts from another craft book. Three prompts a day, to be split over the course of the day, morning, lunch, and dinner. Who has time for that? I do them all at once, right before I begin my 90-Day exercise.


When I'm done writing for the day, I'm reading all the other craft books I own.


In other words, I'm doing a ton of #notwriting the two books I'm supposed to be working on right now. I'm hoping the 90-Day book gets me closer to actual words on my work in progress. Someday. Today is not that day.
