Today’s tip is as much for myself as anyone else. I seem to have slacked off in my writing. Slacked off is actually putting it mildly. I haven’t written anything in months. Not a poem, a chapter, a page, nothing, nada! Why? Put it down to pure procrastination. I have gotten caught up in the world of online gaming at pogo.com. Yes, I am addicted to scrabble online. I started out by saying that it was justified because I was exercising my mind and building my vocabulary. Now I realize I have used it as another excuse to put off trying to finish my novel.
Why? Oh, well its that old bugger-bear, fear of failure. If I don’t finish it, I can’t submit it, and can’t get rejected.
So, what am I going to do? I am officially grounding myself from pogo! Or at least limiting myself to one game of scrabble a day! lol!
