Hello from I-want-to-write
I am a PhD student in my late twenties and I have always been a chronic procrastinator. Writing the doctorate, somewhat unsurprisingly, has exacerbated the issue to an extend that I can no longer avoid it.
It is the only thing which is stopping my progress and I find it incredibly frustrating that I cannot cope with it by just getting on with the work. Anyway, this site has already been incredibly useful - the discovery of thinking about procratination as an addiction and the idea of working in short bursts have saved my last chapter.
As I stare into the abyss of the next mammoth piece of writing, I only hope that I can get better at dealing with it over time. It is honestly one of the biggest challenges I have ever faced. The funny thing is, I actually really like writing and I love my subject.
Thanks for reading and hello again!
