Thoughts on writing

All of my thoughts today have been stolen...of course that makes them no less accurate to my feels at the moment. I want to write, I need to write, and for once there is something else I must do before I can write.

The easiest thing to do on earth is not write.
(William Goldman)

Writing is 90 percent procrastination: reading magazines, eating cereal out of the box, watching infomercials. It's a matter of doing everything you can to avoid writing, until it is about four in the morning and you reach the point where you have to write.
(Paul Rudnick)

We can't be as good as we'd want to, so the question then becomes, how do we cope with our own badness?
(Nick Hornby)

Planning to write is not writing. Outlining--researching--talking to people about what you’re doing, none of that is writing. Writing is writing.
(E L Doctorow)

And my final thoughts of the day:

Don't get it right, just get it written.
(James Thurber)

Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.
(E L Doctorow)

Well I guess attribution means they aren't stolen thoughts rather it means I'm an academic. LOL A double social schizophrenic is ever there were such a career path.

Hi there, I am also a PhD student and queen of procrastination. I just loved your opening quotes, especially about what 90% of writing is everything but writing-makes me feel a lot better. cheers Sarah

I promised myself spa pampering when my methodology chapter is done :)
