Around the Town

Hey all. Hope you had a great weekend.  I have some links here to start you off to a fabulous week. Or to give you something to procrastinate with as you recover from the weekend and try to switch into productive mode.  What?  I can't be the only one that does that.

First, a great post over at Behler Blog on how to decide how much goes into each chapter.

Next, here is a cool video on how writing is changing the lives of kids in Juvenile detention. it's entitled 'writing saved my life' and was very interesting to watch.

Here is why writers are the worst procrastinators. Rather, we're the worst if you think procrastination is a bad thing.  If you think it's a good thing then we're really the best.  And being the best it good.  No I'm not rambling on just to procrastinate getting back to work. Fine, on to the next and last link.


 Finally, here is 20 things that mentally strong people don't do.  Procrastination isn't listed so I think writers are safe.

Hope you all have a great week!

  2. Great links! I especially like the last one.
    #2 on the list was not staying within your comfort zone.
    I can say that one is a trope for me. The bed is very comfy, especially
    on Monday morning!

  8. I procrastinate making dinner most evenings and just keep writing. Maybe one day my kids or husband will see that I'm engaged in my story and dive in and cook dinner instead of waiting for me. :-)

  9. Thanks for the links. Although I try not to procrastinate as it waste to much time, I find myself doing it more often then I would like to admit.
