Or a variation of the title: doing everything but write because deep down you have writer's anxiety.
I find that my biggest problem when it comes to writing is that I procrastinate. I procrastinate a lot, actually. I open word and stare at my manuscript and smile. I read and reread parts that I'm unsure of and then I open up chrome and begin to do research.
Researching what, exactly? Well, everything that is anything about writing. Because why write when I could be learning the ins and out of the industry? Why just sit down and write when I could ogle tumblr for visual inspiration? Why write when I could search for songs to listen to while I write?
While I write? When do iIwrite?
I really need to stop being so worried about how well I'm writing or whether or not my story is up to par. I need to stop second guessing myself and just put my fingers to the keyboard. Because in the time that I've been writing this blog post, I could have been writing.
