I’ve been told that as a writer, if your story doesn’t grip you by the throat, and you keep putting off your writing—that’s a bad sign. It means your story sucks.
In case this procrastination continues, and you have to force your writing for a few days, I’m told, you should consider a change of career. You aren’t cut out to be a writer.
I do procrastinate sometimes. And yes, my stories refuse to cooperate with me.
But I’ve never found that enough grounds for quitting as a writer. Sometimes, discipline is hard to come by and all I have to do is grit my teeth and just do the best I can with what I have. Just write. And I do just that—most of the time.
Writer or not, are you a procrastinator? And if you’re a writer, do all your stories write themselves from beginning to end without a struggle?
