Procrastination: How To Stop It?



Discipline is required for writing as
in life. Writing improvement extends
from training and enough self-control
to write. Training and self-control
equals discipline. No one is too young
to learn the healthy habits of
discipline.

Often, you have to muster-up extra
effort for discipline, writing or
reaching a goal. Dig-out a calendar
and pencil-in dates to write. Yes,
make an appointment with yourself.
If necessary, have a planned treat
after you complete the writing date
with yourself or reach a goal. Making
a writing date with yourself falls
under the heading of extra effort.

After repeated effort, you'll no
longer need to make an appointment
with yourself. Writing or reaching
a goal, in time, happens
automatically.

When one writing project is finished,
go to the next one. Continue to make
goals and reach them. It's up to you
as to whether or not self-treating
goes on. Always believe in you, your
writing talent.

A person can be pushed, encouraged,
but if he/she doesn't believe in him/
herself than words will enter one ear
and exit the other. He/she is un-
changed and remains on a doubting
self path.

Doubt yourself and few others will
believe in you, your talent. It's a
matter of choice, self belief and
discipline.

Life has a habit of not going your
way. Still, believe in yourself,
write and reach goals. Over time,
the writing process gets easier and
a better understanding of your
talent dawns.

Don't allow procrastination to steal
away writing goals. It's important
to actively work toward writing
goals.

Change and improvement happens when
you actively work on writing projects.
This is how goals are reached and
procrastination stopped.

It's a major accomplishment to look
at or hold finished writing projects
in your hands. Don't relax there.
Start the next writing project.
Besides, it's best to put aside
the finished writing project before
editing. Come-back on another day
to edit. A time away gives the gift
of new, better, writing ideas.

In the end, procrastination is stopped.
You're, finally, on a first name basis
with discipline.

In closing, today is a good time to
start. Sit down. Pencil-in an actual
date to stop procrastination, write
and actively work toward goals.

About Me

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.


She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.


She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.


Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
