Is it possible to be a writer and not procrastinate? I often ponder this question…while procrastinating instead of getting some writing done.
I’m sure there may be writers out there who don’t procrastinate, but I’ve never met one. People who are able to write without a snack break, tea break, random paper and pencil realignment, or that essential quick peak to see what is happening on Facebook or Twitter, remain a myth.
So, is a little procrastination good for us?
Well, I’m inclined to think a little procrastination never hurt anyone. In fact, I would go so far as to suggest that procrastination is an art form, and most writers have a deep sense of respect and empathy for our fellow procrastinators.
We get it. We get them.
And we know that sometimes you need to embrace a little procrastination before you can get down to doing something constructive with your time.
Procrastination is a warm-up. It’s a means to an end.
It’s also a reward.

Is there such a thing as too much procrastination? I’ll leave you to decide 🙂
