The hardest part of being a writer. There are a lot of answers to this question, especially depending on where in the writing process you are, but the truth is that my challenges as a writer usually come back to one thing – procrastination. I’ve used the line ‘but I work better under pressure’ more times than I’ve worked under pressure. Guilty of plucking my eyebrows, cleaning my closet and reading feminist think pieces, if I put half as much time into work as I did finding ways out of it, I’d actually be getting somewhere.
All that being said, here are a few of my favorite ways to muck off, when I should be writing.
Eating chocolate-covered espresso beans.
This one is pretty self-explanatory. I mean, they’re delicious and full of fun kinds of energy that I can use for not-writing!
Listening to dirty audiobooks.
My face listening to dirty scenes in public places.
Watching Criminal Minds.
I legitimately tried to write this one off as research for a while but even I wasn’t buying it.
Looking at pictures of the cast of BBC’s Musketeers.
Two gifs because TRY AND ARGUE WITH ME, I DARE YOU.
Reading Harry Potter FanFiction.
FanFic made me the smut writer I am today! (Side note: Supernatural + Fourth Wall = Smashy, smashy.)
Looking at spring dresses on Pinterest/ModCloth.com.
Except I don’t have any money and I spend most of my time in oversized sweaters and slippers.
Ya had to know this one was coming! I just can’t seem to stop myself.
