Procrastination is great. It helps you avoid failure, judgment, growing pains, testing. It also stops you from experiencing fun, success, learning, growth, connection and pride.
When it comes to writing, I am not big on procrastinating. But my other pursuits, for example drawing and scrapbooking, are often victims of a mental block that tells me I must have a vision before I sit down and crack the notebook open. When I was a child this vision thing did not matter. In fact, I can tell you that I always had a vision. Now I feel like I never have one. So last night I re-read the chapter on Resistance from The Creative License in order to harness some Dutch courage. I decided to adapt one of Danny's suggestions for today's prompt in case it's your writing that is stomped.
Write one paragraph each about procrastination, self-doubt, obligation, perfectionism, judgementalism.
