Repeat after me....P-R-O-C-R-A-S-T-I-N-A-T-I-O-N

I'm going to ask this question of my fellow authors out there. How many of you put off writing to the last minute? And if you do, why?

I'm a notorious procrastinator. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing that I love more in life than writing. So I don't understand why I put it off until my deadline is looming like an in-coming fog. I often tell myself it's because I work best under pressure, but that's not necessarily true. I have a love/hate relationship with writing. It's like an addiction. I have to get my "fix," yet I know how it'll consume every moment and every breath I take until I'm done. I don't know, maybe it's just me. I thought it would be curious to see how many other authors share this affliction...

I can relate to the love-hate thing. Maybe we procrastinate because of the intensity of the process.

I procrastinate editing. I write the story, then put off editing it. LOL I hate editing it.
