One of my latest things is to tidy. I hate tidying (ok, I don't hate it so much but when you're working with my bedroom it becomes a little overwhelming). They say that writers often have spotless homes simply because all the household chores become vitally important just as you're about to start writing. I know this feeling. It's not why I'm tidying, but it probably has something to do with it. The thing is I thought I'd procrasitinate writing by tidying and then procrastinate tidying by writing. It hasn't quite turned out like that.
Despite my flawless plan I've found that I'm more likely to tidy that to write. However, I'm even more likely to focus on reading and cross-stitch and reading blogs than tidying. So my room is very very slowly being tidied. Every now and again some writing gets done. And I'm spending far too much time procrastinating, a.k.a doing nothing.
Anyone have any tips how to get out of this rut? What do you do when you find you're doing something to put off doing something else?
