Procrastination is a terrible terrible act. Many of us struggle with it on a routine basis. In writing, I struggle with it a great deal; fresh ideas pop in my head and the beginning stages occur but often there is little follow through. Maybe an outline and a chapter are completed; maybe a a ton of research. Once I did get four chapters of a potential novel written before giving up because the dialogue was so terribly awful.
Reading books about writing is funny although I have done it and find that some of what the authors say make sense and try to incorporate their hints and suggestions. The thing is with the amount that I read, I feel like contributing in some way. This is why it is such a draw for me and something to attempt.
That is all over. I aim to get a first draft done by March 31st of this year. And I will push my brother to do the same.
