I know that there are several solutions to the problem. The one that I’ve settled on is to create a schedule for when I write. Now comes the hardest part, actually sticking to it.
I work most days so the time that I do have is limited to evenings. On the days that I work I have scheduled three hours that I will write. On the days that I don’t work I’ve scheduled an additional three hours. In addition I’ve set aside on day a week to work on my blog posts. I only post two blogs a month, but I often find myself working on my blog on the very day that it is to post. No surprise to myself this is one of those days.
I am giving myself a little bit of leeway in the schedule. I’m giving myself two days a month that I can slack off. I’m also taking the holidays off as well. I’m talking real holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas not some of those ridiculous holidays that you hear about. If I took those off, I wouldn’t get any writing in. There is practically one for every day of the year.
Now I think it’s your turn to tell me what solution you’ve come up with to get over your writing procrastination. And here’s the real kicker. Have they worked?
