Writing About Writing. Another Form of Procrastination?

  1. It is the fail-safe subject. When writer’s block hits, I can always resort to this topic. We should all have that go-to subject when nothing seems to inspire us.
  2. It is a form of meta-learning. Reflecting on my writing process helps me refine my process. It can help with productivity. Thinking about writing and what I want to accomplish helps me focus when I sit down to write. It can be a way to connect with other writers. Sharing my writing process and struggles with other writers can be helpful and inspiring.
  3. It reinforces the most important part of a daily publishing practice- showing up and publishing. Even if I don’t have anything particularly insightful to say about writing, the act of writing about writing reminds me that it’s important to keep writing.
