I find I am procrastinating, so I am exorcising that demon..

When I procrastinate, I:
1) Open a procrastination thread in Grist for the Mill.
2) Read threads from six months ago.
3) Develop new mail filing rules for Outlook, Entourage, or whatever mail program I am playing with.
4) Reorganize the top of my desk.
5) Prune my writing and critting project management tools.
6) Read the thousands of blogs about writing that I subscribe to.
7) Check my mail, who knows? there could be an acceptance there.
8) Fold the laundry.
9) Toy with my day-job work.
10) IM my oldest son to see if NYC is still there.

What do you do? I am running out of ideas and am wasting valuable procrastination time!

I can spend ninety-some minutes online going through my favorite websites, then have my back give out from hunching over the computer before I can get down to any serious writing.

I can also come up with an utterly useless project that takes up a good deal of time. (Right now my project is downloading artwork onto my iTunes thingamajig---by chance I figured out how, and I've been at it ever since.)

(The above also plays into my elsewhere-mentioned back problems---which are getting worse, it seems.)

I procrastinate by...
1) Checking Hatrack.
2) Checking email (did anyone write to me? How about now? How about now? How about now?)
3) Playing computer games (right now I'm obsessed with tribalwars.net
4) Researching some obscure and probably not very important question that came up during writing.
5) Tracking down some interesting-sounding book on Amazon.com that I heard about somewhere from someone.
6) Reading about writing. Thinking about writing.
7) Cleaning the house.

I have to say I'm very pro crastination which I guess makes me a procrastinator.

I think the secret of successful procrastination is to identify a good displacement activity, which has to appear
- responsible, e.g. checking e-mail, we are responsible to others
- useful, e.g. vacuum cleaning or laundry
- mind expanding, e.g. reading the Guardian or NY Times online
- necessary, e.g. making a backup CD
- helpful, e.g. calling a friend who needs to procrastinate
- relevant, e.g. background research for the story at hand
- like writing, e.g. revising backstory

Procrastinatorally,
Pat

-play free cell
-check out family and friend's blogs
-play the piano
-read yahoo's news tidbits
-write

Has no one else discovered the wonders of the facebook time sink? Not just the usual:

- check friends' statuses
- see who has posted recent pictures
- come up with something pithy to say for my own current status

but the real time sink is playing those silly games like word twist and scramble. There's only so much I can tell myself they're helping prime me for writing.

Other things I do:
- online shopping
- tidying up (I save procrastinate all the "cleaning" but I swear I spend 2 hours a day just tidying up.)
- doing my day job
- uploading pics to shutterfly

I like what Robert Novall said about coming up with some useless project that takes lots of time. Like the time I hand-painted two large frames for the kids' artwork. Or decided to rip a bunch of movies to an SD card (which required a lot of annepin's aforementioned somewhat useless and time consuming research) or anything else like that.

Yes, Skadder wow!

KayTi- Facebook is an amazing time sink. I even get double duty for facebook time, because my nano novel takes place in part on facebook, so I get both procrastination and research points!

Back to writing,
Leslie

Of course I have other time-wasting things that are important, like cleaning up my messes and rearranging my stuff. (I make space, but it's like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.)

There's also those time-wasting things that make me money, like going to work...

I can write and rewrite one post--and then I check my punctuation. Then I'll add a sentence and take it back out. Did anyone ever notice the way I edit nearly every post I write? It's an art form.

Then I'll check the lyrics to a song, and then find the song on YouTube and watch the video.

Then I'll do some random bit of research that affects exactly one sentence in a story.

Now there's one time waster I can't see myself doing. I check my e-mail only when I go online, and make no special trips there to do so.

Reminds me of cell phone usage. It seemed like a fad at first, but seems deeply established in our culture now. I've got one, the only one I've ever had, but I hardly ever use it. I see people talking away at all hours---literally: I'm on the night shift and I'll see people talking at three or four in the morning. I just can't imagine who they're talking to. I mean, I don't even like to talk on the phone. What's the great joy in that?

11) Check on the procrastination thread that you started on Hatrack...

"Do I really *have* to go back to work?" She says as she walks away dragging the toes of her shoes in the dust, "But I have to work on my Nano Novel!"

For those of you procrastinating by keeping track of these things...I can say that, for all intents and purposes, about an hour ago I completed my time-wasting loading artwork-onto-iTunes project. I've been through my entire CD collection and downloaded all but a couple of album covers. (Those ones didn't turn up in the pile---probably they're around here somewhere, under the clutter, and will turn up later and I'll put up the artwork then.)

I wound up with a hair under thirty-three hundred songs. There's a certain amount of duplication (for example, I kept variant British and American release versions of songs by The Beatles.)

I expect to download more songs---I can think of a couple of dozen I don't have on CD that I want, and there are still a few things I skipped downloading as I went through 'em---but downloading stuff will be as-I-go from now on.

*****

But I'm sure I can come up with some new time-waster. I've got one in mind---I've got a pile of mail to shred. I let it pile up for about three months at a time, a nice divide in the calendar, then run it through my shredder all at once. But I put it off and put it off, and not I've got a pile-and-a-half to go through.

I google cryptozoology on a daily basis pretty much.... yup... you never know when a new species might be discovered... there was photos of an albino killer whale just the other day.

Then I check my email about 400 times. Play spider solitaire while backing up files... then back them up again so I can finish that game of spider solitaire. Check the myspace a couple times.

And then I make itunes playlists, dozens of them, for different chapters and different stories. Then I come on here and read every post, but rarely reply.

Are we talking domestic canines and felines here? If so, then all we need to do is consider their relative size ranges. While there are some domestic dog species that are smaller than domestic cats, they are usually rather expensive and high maintenance and therefore not nearly as common as domestic dogs that are as large as or larger than domestic cats.

And, please, let's not let a cat-versus-dog discussion become another way to procrastinate?

I relate it to an incident in my early childhood where I was chased down and bitten in the seat of the pants by a dog. Didn't break the skin, but it left me intimidated by dogs of all kinds, even the tiny pissant ones. (When I get to know one, I'm less intimidated, but even then, sudden movements and barking still gets my heart action up.)

On the other hand, domestic cats, even the strange ones, will on some occasions come right up to me and demand to be petted or picked up. (I was mobbed at the Key West Hemingway Home.) I can't say why, but it happens---sometimes. Dogs'll do it, too, but I'm put off by it---and I'm sure not when cats do it.

This thread just reminded me...there's a movie called "Cats and Dogs" that I haven't watched in a while. Perhaps, I will spin it tonight before I start my writing session.

Sincerely,
The Human Rain Delay



Personally, I prefer the term "The Human Four-Corner Offense," but that makes reference to the U of North Carolina's basketball team, and I refuse to honor them because I'm a Maryland fan. So, there!!!

How much time did I just spend?

I can procrastinate by watching movies, too---yesterday I spent two and a half non-consecutive hours watching my DVD of the movie "Chaplin," plus about a half hour of ancillary documentaries and extras.

So uh, I guess saying I play my Nintendo DS for ~5 hours+ daily sounds pretty childish, huh?

I really shouldn't be doing that. Especially at this time of the year (exams are coming).

Right now, I should be doing math homework because it's due at 3:00 AM and I haven't learned any math for the past two weeks, but I'm procrastinating by going on hatrack.

Oh dear.

I found a new way to procrastinate...or, rather, this was forced on me.

Last Saturday I had a file refuse to open. This was just a database file, cataloging-as-I-got-them the dates and serial numbers of accumulated savings bonds. It was on an old disk and just wouldn't open. Keeps telling me the disk needs to be reformatted. (Every other file on the disk would open, so it's not the disk itself---I think.)

Anyway, I've embarked on a project of recreating the file. I was able to cut and paste about a fifth of them from an older copy file...for the rest, right now I'm working my way through the bonds themselves. I'm searching my office for some old printouts and other files that might have a little bit more. But it'll all take some time to finish...

(Actually, I'm happy it wasn't one of my story files. You know the rule: the stuff you've written and lose in the bowels of cyberspace is always better than what you can find...)

Well this ones seems to move at near glacial speeds, so a quick check once a week (or even every two weeks) in is all that is needed...but it fills a gap in the procrastination bin.

IB, "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy". Look up through the posts.

I made a pictogram out of it. My first two attempts didn't work, so I ended up using lines ____ for the facial features. Talk about a waste of time! I can do a lot better with pencil.
