Procrastination – 1; Writing – 0

Maybe it’s the summer or maybe it’s just me, but I can’t seem to get in to writing the things that I need to get done. I have an article deadline looming over my head and I still have the Introduction and Conclusion to write. The new semester is a little over a month away and I have to write one more course syllabus. Not to mention writing the coordinating lesson plans and assignments.

Why is it that we often procrastinate with the things we do not want to do but eagerly tackle the things we love?  Now don’t get me wrong; I absolutely love teaching and writing.  But for some reason ever since I started blogging I would rather write a new blog post than a homework assignment.  I used to think my piles of laundry were a result of procrastination but now I know that is just avoidance.  I have hope for my writing.  The laundry . . . not so much!

Happy Writing!

    So true! Even though I also love to write, I remember in college that I would end up cleaning the toliet just to avoid writing a term paper.

    Sorry–I’m afraid you may have inherited this from me!
    Love,

    Yep– me too! Only my procrastination tool is reading! I suppose it’s universal.
