I'm REALLY good at procrastinating. I'm also really good at telling myself things are going to be a certain way and then I go out of my way to make things work against that. Why do I do that? It's like I'm two different people. This should come as no surprise to people who know the real me. The real me likes to listen to Britney Spears. No joke. I enjoy a lot of her music while I'm writing because she's upbeat and catchy and my brain can concentrate with the repetition and brainless mind-candy. Oh well. You can laugh. Go ahead.
So we at the Literary Lab have this thing coming up called an anthology. We are offering CASH prizes to three winners. Also, me and Davin and Scott will be including our own short stories in the anthology. No, we don't get a shot at the cash. We just want to play.
I have yet to write my story, but I'm gearing up to it and I wanted to talk about how procrastination gets my creativity going. Isn't that odd? It does! Because as I've been procrastinating this short story, my subconscious has been working hard on some ideas. I hope when I sit down to write the story, it just flows out. That usually happens when I procrastinate enough. Does this happen to you at all? Am I crazy? Well, I listen to Britney sometimes. I must be, but at least I'm a happy crazy while I'm writing after all that procrastination. *smile*
