I am Dug*, the lovable and easily distracted dog in Up.
I want to enter the NPR contest and the clock is ticking. Did I work on the piece today? No really. I glanced at it on the train this morning, but told myself I’d work on it on the commute home. Did I? No, because I wanted to be home so that I could concentrate and well…
Coincidentally, someone sent me a link to the “distraction free writing environment.” My favorite feature is the “non-distracting circus music” that plays “every time you manage to finish a word.” I could probably use that about now.
*When getting this post together, I thought my analogy was so funny. Turns out, it was so clever, I’d already used it. D’oh! I shouldn’t be surprised since procrastination is either my best asset or by biggest failing.
