Kristen Lamb, author of We Are Not Alone & Are You There Blog? It’s Me, Writer, often writes about procrastination inhibiting a writer’s ability to get what they need to get done.
And that applies to everyone, right? I mean, whether you’re a writer or a mother or an accountant or whatever you are ~ procrastination peeks it’s ugly little head in and suddenly everything else is more important than what you are supposed to be doing.
All of the sudden,
- the laundry needs to be done now
- the dog needs a bath
- the taxes need filing
- the baseboards must be wiped down
- isn’t the car due for an oil change, and
- when is the last time we took that nice after dinner walk as a family..
Oh, I think I’ll make a pie! Like, for the first time ever!
Kristin calls them the procrastination pixies and encourages us all to just eat those frogs ~ which is some great advice ~ especially if you’re from the south and accustomed to eating their legs anyway.
