Procrastination and doubt

Hi again. It's good to be alive, isn't it? I've run across a website for cat lovers. I have had cats in my life and loved them, but when my last cat died, I said enough. It broke my heart. But I love looking at pictures of cats. They are so innovative and entertaining. Below is an example of what you can find on the site.

My husband and I have bought our retirement home. We actually bought it last December. Last month was the first time we'd spent any time enjoying it. We're not ready to move there full time yet. We have our old home to prepare for market. That's where we are now, half way across country from our new home. Confused yet?

That's not the subject of this post, it's the reason I've been procrastinating. I'm also crippled by doubt. We've all been through it. Some days you're flying with enthusiasm, the next, not so much. When this condition hits, It always amazes me how quickly I become distracted. Yesterday, however, I spent a half hour writing. Today I'm going to spend some time writing. Everyday I need to force myself to write. On those days I don't quite get there, I mustn't fall back into the habit of procrastination. That's my new mantra.

How do you guys fight doubt and procrastination? Any ideas?

  1. Oh that picture is just so cute! I love cats too. Posted one of my cat on my blog today. I think all writers know what you mean by procrastination. I don't know what the answer is I'm afraid but I usually find taking a break and not thinking about writing usually clears my head so I'm keen to get going again. Hope you're back on track soon.

    1. Taking a brake is one of the easiest things to do without guilt. That's what I'm going to call my slump--taking a break. Thanks for the tip.

    1. Thank you James. I don't feel like I know what I'm doing most of the time. I'm usually slipping along on the seat of my pants. I'm glad you like my blog. Though I've been away from it for a few months, I've worked hard so others can enjoy it. Good luck to you.

  3. I try to remind myself that the worst possible decision would be not making one. We all make mistakes, it is what it is.

    Enjoy your retirement.
