On Procrastination

June 27th, 2008

I read a lot on some blogs and in books about writer’s block and procrastination. Try this for an approach to it:

Imagine for a moment that you can know the date of your death.
Now, imagine that date is about two months from now.
Finally, ask yourself this one question: could I leave the world knowing this book will never be published?

If the answer is no, then write like blazes!
If the answer is yes, then why are you writing the book at all?

    On the topic of procrastination – I spent the evening tweaking my blog layout and adding social bookmarking badges. Now that’s some stylish procrastination!
