Okay, perhaps I should be more clear in the headline... this is how I trick myself out of procrastinating, but hopefully it will work for you too!
So I'm a full-time writer; I obviously have this blog which sadly I've been neglecting lately (sorry), I have my professional work of writing articles and feature pieces, and then there's the novel that I'm supposed to be writing. I should be doing all of these things every day, as well as my photography work, but I'll admit I've been lacking motivation lately.
This is what happens....
Anyone who works from home will tell you that it can sometimes be quite hard to motivate yourself. You don't have rigid work hours, sometimes you don't have a permanent work space and there's all sorts of distractions that you wouldn't get in a traditional office.
My way of getting around all of these, is that I pretend. It's as simple as that. I pretend.
I know those points all sound quite simple, and probably quite silly, but they really do work for me. It takes me into a different headspace and I get a lot of work done.
Now I just need to find a way to stop procrastinating about how to stop procrastinating... 😉
Stay safe lovelies, x
