Today's quote is from a young British actor named Christopher Parker. He was a stunt double in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Other than that I know nothing about him. That said, I like this quote. It speaks loudly to me.
Procrastination is like a credit card. It's a lot of fun until you get the bill.
I have a confession to make. Maybe if I write it out loud it will help me.
I am a procrastinator.
I do well when under a dead-line imposed from without. I get down to it and write away, content and happy. But I can't seem to put a dead-line on myself. It just doesn't work, particularly as it relates to revising, which I struggle with. I will find a gazillion things to do. Anything from pulling weeds to reading to taking a nap to blogging to(GASP) dusting.
I'm asking for help here. If any of you have any methods for breaking the procrastination curse, any words of wisdom to help me get over my revision revulsion, I would appreciate it.
