Procrastination Moderation – Writing 101 Day 7

Ah, procrastination. My friend. I live with procrastination, and the internet is the main culprit to my issues with putting off writing. I am forever getting distracted by social media, ironically because I’m using social media as the platform to this post.  But it is something that is a part of me. I’ll never be able to lose the procrastination bug in me.

This would cause me serious procrastination

But does it kill creativity or is it essential. Personally, I think it is two-fold. It can kill it when you should be writing and you get so distracted you lose what you needed to say. That has been my problem in the past. I have something I need to write about, or look up for writing, and the distraction makes it so that I never get around to writing, so I lose the thought. Or idea.

But then, on the other hand, because I get distracted and put off writing, I can find some really cool things. Or see something out in life because I’m not writing. I think it’s good to have a happy balance to procrastination. If you have something you need to get done, do it. But if you are creating, sometimes not sitting down to write is a really good idea. Maybe going outside for a walk will inspire something that you might not have had had you been sitting at your computer writing away. Or if your creativity medium is something different, the same rule applies.

Basically, take everything in moderation. Even procrastination.
