Why Writers Are the Worst Procrastinators

WTF with this article!!! Or is it a clever way to get her point across? Nice flow about procrastination, psychological reasons … and then boom … she goes fully ballistic: embracing hard work and trashing the millennials. There is a small point but even as an adaptation of her book, totally irrelevant to writer procrastination. For a second I thought she was one of these old fringe right misogynists (there are shes like that) spewing their early morning emailed line-by-line parroting talking points instruction venom of usual suspects of social and moral decline: East coast education (or any for that matter,) female equality, science, lack of responsibility and Starbucks at every Christmas. What would Jesus do? Of course he already forgave McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King and the rest of corporate America for saying Holidays … 

I liked the “unmasking” part: “The fear of being unmasked as the incompetent you ‘really’ are is so common that it actually has a clinical name: impostor syndrome.” We should include that in section 702 reform to not unmask impostors … only 2 weeks until it expires and no procrastination! 

The psychological origins of waiting (… and waiting, and waiting) to work.
