The title for this challenge is ironic.
I have a deadline to meet for my masters degree. A script development portfolio which will be the basis for my dissertation, should I pass the final 30 credits for this year. Having spent approximately eight hours in the library yesterday I have got about half way through. However, what I should be doing at this precise moment in time is rewriting my step-outlines for episode one and six.
What am I doing?
I’ve been watching Andy Murray play in the Queen’s Club Final on television, logging a postcard I received via the http://www.postcrossing.com project, writing this blog and browsing new themes as I am getting fed up of the design of my website http://www.thenorthernscribbler.com
If that is not procrastinating then I don’t know what is.
I find social media addictive and I have to be up to date with everything that is going on in the world, everywhere at every time. Okay, slight exaggeration there. It’s a distraction from doing what I should be doing, which is the process of developing the script which is the least favourite part for me.
I find the process of writing treatments, step-outlines and pitch documents to be laborious. Yes I know it’s an essential part of the creative process, but all I really want to do is to write dialogue – that’s way more fun.
This is a post for http://www.writesofluid.com’s blog writing challenge. One blog post a day for all of June – I’m behind already but determined to catch up #wpad
