I wrote about procrastination on my personal blog recently. So, I wanted to address this issue on the StoryWriting Studio, too.
I know that I’m not the only writer who struggles with this issue, right?
Do you deal with procrastination, too?
My online dictionary defines a “procrastinator” as someone who put things off till another day or time, deferring action or delaying. It illustrates this definition by saying that we can “procrastinate until an opportunity is lost.”
So I must ask this question: Lord, am I a procrastinator?
I never thought this term described me. But I know that I tend to compulsively overcommit to more than I can reasonably handle most of the time. Do you?
In reality, I know that I am NOT a “procrastinator.” This word does NOT define me. But I DO seem to be tempted to put things off from time to time. And I sense that some opportunities available to me right now may be lost forever if I don’t address this issue in my life.
Maybe I’ve fallen prey to this condition because of my age, burnout, or health issues. But I don’t think I need any negative self-talk right now, shaming me because I have this problem. So, I must seek what God’s Word says about this issue.
How do you deal with procrastination in your writing life?
