Most Clever Excuse for Procrastination

I confess I’m a procrastinator.

In fact, I’d go as far to say I’d be in the top 10% of procrastinators.

To show you how bad my procrastination is, here are a couple of examples.

  • Instead of going to bed early, I’ll stay up to read another chapter in a book.
  • When I should be busy writing, I’m browsing my social media sites.
  • When I need to clean the house, I’m trying to beat the next level on Candy Crush or Pet Rescue.


So you can see just what my procrastination is like.

I feel guilty for procrastinating because I know I should be doing more important work. Social media and games are the main reasons for my procrastination.

But I wouldn’t say that I’m procrastinating with social media. I use the sites to promote my books and the books from my fellow authors. So you could say I’m helping to spread the word about these wonderful literary creations.

As for games, that can’t really be considered procrastination either because I read somewhere that games help stimulate the mind. I can’t remember exactly where I read it, but it’s something I’ve always heard. So I’ve got to play a game every once in a while to keep my brain sharp so I can work.

You are discovering the inner workings of minds that are not your own. You’re seeing speech/writing patterns, what people do and do not share, you’re gaining ideas for character names and quirks …

    As you can see, I have mad skills at justifying it!
