Is it just me… or the harder and harder I try to work, do I inevitably find newer and more interesting ways to waste time?
Things that seemed useful, but were actually unconscious (or consciously suppressed) methods of procrastinating:
(besides this post)
—making sure to get lots (and lots of sleep)…how much sleep do successful authors get, anyhow (makes note to email successful authors about sleep habits)
—deciding whether to use the word “anyhow” instead of “anyway,” and going with “anyhow” because it is underused and sounds more fun
—editing/updating blog layout/sidebars
—updating NaNoWriMo profile
—deciding whether eating breakfast is *really* necessary or just another diversion
—cleaning out my inbox (dirty dirty inbox)
—organizing my documents and folders in Word
Not even pretending these aren’t total timesucks:
—trying out gmail’s “new look” and then deciding I need to spend as much time as possible with the “old look,” before it is forever ripped away from me
—then posting about my dislike of gmail’s “new look” on facebook and google+ (reminder: need to tweet about dislike of gmail’s “new look”)
— google images "time suck"
NOT a timewaster: WRITING
Why? Because nothing else is WRITING, ONLY WRITING IS WRITING.
