    There are clearly days that I don’t want to write. On those days, I tend to get a lot of other things done, but none of that is writing. I avoid it, I know it’s wrong but during these times atleast other things are being done. But what are those things? What can consume enough time, in order for me to avoid sitting at my desk and writing a thirty minute post? Let’s find out.
    1. Video games- I have completed many seasons in football, baseball, soccer, golf, and basketball. During the writers block moments, I tend to find cool ideas of challenges or players that need to be created.
     2. I will read – yeah! In order to get away from writing, I will sit down with a great book and read. It convinces me that what I’m doing is okay, and that it was for the best, because Stephen King says “To be a great writer, you must read great writing.”
     3. Pick up new hobbies- This can range from a new sport, a new “challenge”, or anything else. Recently, I went through a drought and found myself learning to pick locks. I have taught myself a lot of cool things, yet once I got back to writing, I forgot all about those hobbies, well until I hit the drought again.
    4. Sleep- I love to sleep! There is nothing like going to sleep early, but sadly that has become the problem. Now, instead of writing, I find that I go to sleep early to avoid writing. It isn’t that serious, I eventually write, but I do sleep in order to avoid writing.
     5. Cleaning- I never clean, unless I’m avoiding the tablet. The house could be a mess for a week, yet when I want to leave writing, that is where I go. I will clean the house from top to bottom. It is funny yet sad that I do this. I love having a clean house, but I sometimes don’t want to clean it. I am kind of glad that I get the passion to clean, atleast the house is getting clean, while I should be writing!


     This is only scratching the surface of how bad I can be, but now I want to hear from you. I want to hear from you. I  want to know what you do to procrastinate. Please leave a comment below, show the world who you are. I am waiting!!!
