Stop Over-thinking and Do It

I read an article the other day about procrastination. I think it would definitely apply to most of the writers I know. We are all the same - we find ourselves cleaning the whole house from top to bottom to procrastinate writing.

The article had one very simple tip. Stop thinking about it and just do whatever it is you are trying to do. As people, we often over-think things. Apples turn into melons in our heads. The bigger something is, the more intimidating it is and the more we procrastinate.

If we stop and leap onto the path we really want to be on before we can cross over the bridge to procrastination, we can accomplish amazing things. Each small step brings us closer to our dreams as writers. So stop (over)thinking and do it.


  1. I am at the final stage of my novel and am doing everything but write it!

  2. I'm right there with you. You would think the end would be the easiest because you know it's almost done, but I find I feel a lot of pressure writing endings.
