How I waste my weekends...

Like the good procrastinator I am, I find a hundred other things to do before I sit down to write. I watch t.v. and attempt to work out and sometimes I even manage to clean my room and do my laundry. Usually I'm only home on Saturdays, so everything that needs to be done has to be done in one day. The last thing I can get to is my writing! In fact, I'm least productive on weekends. I figure, since I can write at work, why should I write on the weekend? But as this deadline looms, I realize that I can't put my book on the back burner, I should be writing every day, trying to meet my daily word count.
I'm happy to report that I've reached 40 000 words today :) and I'm shooting to write 3000 words rather than 2000. I've been falling behind and I need to catch up!

How do you waste your weekends?


  1. It's awesome that you have been productive! I know how you feel about procrastination. All my writing is usually done on my laptop and when I sit down to write, I tend to start playing games or surfing the internet before I can get started!

  2. I have the same problem. Work all week then laundry and grocery shopping on saturdays. Cook and plan the meals out for the rest of the week on Sunday.
    So I try to squeeze my writing in somewhere in between. Have done well of setting goal of at least 200 to 400 words per day. But we will see how that works out.

  3. -haha are you a solitare junkie too, Tyler?
    -I think 200-400 words a day is a great goal. For me, 2000 feels like too much :(
