Writing is very enabling for a procastinator like myself.
I need to write today, but...it's cloudy.
I need to write today, but...there's a Battlestar Galactica marathon on SyFy.
I need to write today, but...we need dog food.
Basically, anything can be a reason to not write. So what conditions are right for me to get something done?
Luckily, I don't have to wait for the stars to align.
Tomorrow is the first day of 2011 National Novel Writing Month, which I plan to participate in. So for the next 30 days, I'm going to have to make sure the conditions are right.
It helps to have an idea, and I do have one that I'll start writing on tomorrow.
It helps to have my laptop sitting in a productive place, other than the couch in front of the tv.
It helps to have a hot drink at hand.
It helps to have quiet, so I will walk the dogs early so they will be more inclined to nap the whole day.
It helps to have convenient food so I don't take too much of a break. I plan on making a big pot of chili later today.
These may all sound a little silly, but for a procastinator like myself, eliminating all the things that keep me from writing is exactly how I end up getting something done...
Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo this year?
