I was interview by Nora Tardiff this month. We talked about writing, real life and procrastination.
What do you do when Real Life intrudes on your writing?
It happens a lot unfortunately. Paradoxically, I always have the biggest will and motivation to write when I don’t have time for it, so I try to make do with what I have. Sometimes I write in my phone during the morning commute or jot down ideas while I’m waiting for my class. If it gets really bad, I just let it go. There have been long periods when I didn’t really do any writing but I wasn’t too worried because I knew I would return to it when the time is ripe.
What is your favorite way to avoid writing?
Looking for inspiration on Pinterest. Then talking to my best writing friend. Then noticing that there are unwashed dishes waiting for me…
