Writing: The Real Reason You Procrastinate

Analyse what causes procrastination and why we give into it so easily. Explain how we are weak in the face of impulse and how it actually does not have much to do with our own laziness.

  • I think the internet and TV get in the way of writing. I know when I write on my laptop, I'm tempted to check the news or the weather, though the good thing about the internet is that I can use it to listen to music while I write or research a topic quickly and conveniently. – S.A.

  • Good article idea. It would interesting to see A/ what people do the most whilst procrastinating and B. How those things distract you from that Elephant-in-the-room feeling hanging over you. – Thomas Munday 6 years ago

  • Personally, I procrastinate because writing itself isn't like casual blogging. It demands research, days of writing and revising, proofreading, editing phrases and paragraphs, moving the pieces of text up and down, and learning from experience. And images are needed too! Due to all this, the entire persona of "writing" an article feels like a whole bunch of trouble that can only be done when you're free for weeks. Also, doing little by little each day doesn't work in case of writing, as you need a seamless time and clutter-free brain to emphasis on the entire idea about what you're writing. It'll make a really good article, even for writers of The Artifice, if we can provide simple pointers on how to focus better and avoid procrastination. – Abhimanyu Shekhar 6 years ago

10 Reasons to Watch Supernatural

I wrote a fanfiction once (shh dont judge me) with a huge plot twist in it and everyone got so mad i had to delete three chapters and rewrite them. Plot twists kill.

Plot Twists in Fiction: Making a Story Standout

Some people think these books are simply childrens’ fairytales about magic and enchantments. In reality, they shape peoples’ lives. Every character represents a different life lesson, and I for one learn new things about people, the world, and myself every time I read them. Harry’s world may be fictitious, but the fact that they affect hundreds of lives is very real indeed. Very well written and interesting article.
