Why do I put off writing when I love writing so much? What joy once I stop thinking about writing and actually write! It does not make sense. You would think that if something gives you so much pleasure, you would not procrastinate about doing it. That’s what you would think. But I am human and my behavior is subject inconsistencies.
“The art of writing is the art of applying the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair.”
– Mary Heaton Vorse
Once I have applied the seat of my pants to the seat of the chair and start writing, I think, “What fun! Why did it take me so long to do this? I’ll never put off writing again.” But the very next time it is time to write, I put off writing knowing that I will not feel good if I don’t write. Such odd behavior!
Oh well, I’m only human.
