“I can’t decide if procrastination kills creativity or is essential to it.” This is a tweet by Grant Snider.
I am the queen of procrastination…always have been, but hopefully not forever. Does it kill creativity? No, sometimes it really is essential to it. In my case, the longer I procrastinate about writing, the more ideas pile up in my head. This gives me blogging fodder for a few days at a time.
On the other hand, though, once I’ve procrastinated for a few days it sometimes can lead to more than a week or two with no writing at all. So, there’s obviously two sides to this procrastination coin.
One of my favorite procrastination quotes is, “I gave up procrastinating as a new year’s resolution but I put it off until next year.”
