coffee's going!

writing will calm me down. the hard part is the transition from not yet writing to writing now.

Skiving
I read this and realized I had to write today, too. Which I did. I only wrote for an hour or so, but I'm happy with what I wrote, and I got rid of the crap I'd written in the last few days. So I wrote only one longish obsessive paragraph, but it was a good one. Much better than if I'd skived off the entire morning like I was planning to when I logged on to LJ. So, thanks.

When will this writing thing get rooted in me? Why is it that every single day I still start out by looking for a reason I don't "have to" write today?

well the dissertation writing has both a good and bad effect in this connection insofar as I have to write almost every day and this does get me into the habit of writing all the damned time. I've even started carrying around a little notebook--I bought a packet of those moleskin notebooks that are so fashionable right now--and writing while waiting for the check and other spare moments. never used to do that.

on the other hand, I am always looking for reasons not to have to write the dissertation itself. most days I fail to find any good ones, which bodes well, but the obligation and the desire to escape it still weighs heavily every morning.
