Hi Chick Lit Fans!
It’s been a slow news week chick lit wise, so I thought we’d try something different this week.
It’s summer. It’s hot. There’s lots of fun stuff to do outside. Let’s face it. It’s not like winter, when it’s so much fun to curl up with a cup of tea or hot chocolate and get lost in the story you’re writing.
So I thought I’d throw the question out there. What do you do to avoid writing? For me, lately it’s been this. (Don’t click if you don’t want to get addicted. And yeah, I’m ashamed.) Also, the beach.
Here’s the thing though. There’s something about that mindless computer game, and swimming, and listening to my writing playlist while staring at the sea that does actually get the writing wheels spinning.
So. Procrastination. Valid way to help your writing or an inexcusable crime? If you think it’s valid, what works for you?
Leave a comment and let us know what you think!
Have a great weekend! Oh, and get back to work! (Or not. . .)
