What’s your avoidance strategy?
Last week I wrote about my tendency to stay “busy” in order to avoid writing (and other potentially uncomfortable tasks!) Staying busy certainly isn’t the only writing avoidance strategy out there. It’s probably not even the most common. Others that come to mind include:
- Chasing after shiny new ideas
- Reworking the same page ad infinitum
- Facebook, Twitter, and other social media
- Web surfing
…and there are many more!
Do you have reasons or excuses?
So how do you tackle avoidance in your writing life? There’s no one-size-fits-all answer, but here are some starting ideas.
