8 Ways to Procrastinate During Camp #NaNoWriMo

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

July 1st brings us the start of a magical journey that is Camp NaNoWrimo. In my weekly wrap-up last week, I mentioned that I had in fact signed myself up for this torture enlightening quest to write finish my second WIP. Of course, along with signing up to write a measly 35K in the month of July, I also signed up for more stress. How does Becca deal with stress, you ask? SHE PROCRASTINATES! 

In the last few weeks of June leading up to the start of Camp, I was supposed to be outlining. Which I did. In my head. But hey, that counts! Really. 

Now, with it currently being nineteen minutes past midnight on the first day of Camp NaNo, I am procrastinating writing anything by first and foremost, writing this blog post on other ways to procrastinate during Camp NaNoWriMo. All of which, I will most likely be doing this month. 

**Note: It's not that I don't absolutely LOVE writing, I just seem to be the master at procrastinating when I NEED to be doing something. It takes me a few hours little bit of procrastination before I put butt in chair and get down to bizniz as usual**

1. Reading that one book that you just can't put off one second longer. I.E. EVERY SINGLE BOOK ON MY TBR SHELF. Esp. that one, and this one, and that one too...

2. Exercising Ha. Wait, what? For realsies, need to start this whether I'm procrastinating or not. Maybe this 'procrastination' will be reason enough to get me started.

"My milkshake brings all the words to the page...." 

4. Shopping for new books Hell, I do this everyday anyways. No wonder there's a poof of dust that pops out whenever I open my wallet... Maybe I should pass on this procrastination.

5. Binge watching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries Or really any other show.. Game of Thrones, True Blood, Walking Dead marathon weekend. But really?! I am now in love with The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. HOW HAVE I NOT WATCHED THESE BEFORE?!

6. Responding to all those comments that you haven't gotten to yet. Come on. You know exactly which comments I'm referring to.

7. Dreaming about the fictional world you have yet to write about. Haven't you been doing this enough the past few weeks, Becca? Put butt in chair and pen to paper. 

8. Twitter/Instagram/Email/Bloglovin. You gots to keep up on all the hubbub on the interwebz.

...And two three minutes hours later...
Oh, look, it's time for dinner. 
*repeats 1-8*

  1. I do some of this during NaNoWriMo is was a miracle I ever met my daily world goal!

    1. I know exactly what you mean. I'm still shocked I made my goal last November. I actually surpassed my 50k. Still not sure how I managed that. LOL.

  2. I'm sure you'll do great at both writing and procastinating! I know I procastinate a lot sometimes when I HAVE to write a review and the words don't seem to come up easily enough!
    *stocks up snacks & chocolate milk for Becca's camp procastination*

    1. Mmmm chocolate milk! Yeah, I'm the world's biggest procrastinator EVER. I'm actually replying to overdue comments at the moment bc I'm procrastinating writing my review for tomorrow. LOL.

  3. Ha! Awesome list! Do I procrastinate? Um, yes! Today I've decided that before I get started writing in gonna do my nails. Yeah, I even *planned* to procrastinate! It's sad really, lol. But hey, we can motivate each other and get through (mostly) sane! :D

    1. HAHAHA. I've been so bad at this lately. I plan to procrastinate too. I am hiding my face in shame right now bc I still have yet to write anything. July has been so hectic and crazy and when I'm not busy, I just want to relax. Not write. Blaaaahhhhhhhhh. Bad idea to write during one of my busiest work months. :/ I hope you are writing more than I seem to be!

  4. This is awesome!! My excuse is I have so many projects I can't start another. Lol!

    1. Oooooh, yeah. That's a keeper. Gonna use that one in the future! LOL! ;)
