Hello everyone! My name is Missy Big Words. My favourite thing to do is to talk about big words. You know, big long words, with lots of letters in them. The words we seem to stumble on, the words we seem to have a hard time saying, the words we have a hard time spelling.
Because I am a writer, I tend to procrastinate quite a bit. Nobody really knows that I am procrastinating except for myself. I want to do a lot more writing, but for some reason, I don't like looking at a blank page or blank screen. Even before I get started, I am already procrastinating in my head.
When I procrastinate about writing, I am thinking of a hundred other things that need to be done. Now, mind you, most of those tasks that I replace my writing with do have to be done, but not at the precise moment I want to start writing. Take for instance tonight, I was on the bus on my way home when I got the idea for my new character, Missy Big Words. I sat thinking about it the whole trip home. Once I got home, the first thing I did was turn on my computer but that was over 4 hours ago. I am just getting around to writing this story now. I wanted to do it when I first got home, but I had dishes to do, laundry to do, a hungry cat to feed. Now, in reality, all of those things, well almost all of those things could have waited until I had written this story. The one thing that couldn't wait was feeding my hungry cat. I could not have gotten anything done until I fed Arrow, because Arrow would have made sure of that.
I know I procrastinate a lot. Do you procrastinate? If so, what kinds of things do you procrastinate about?
