Inspire creativity

[tweet 460764353961013248 align=’center’]

I’m not a very creative person. Every work of ‘art’ that I produce is a product of a perfect mix of procrastination and self-discipline. Take for example writing pieces for Writing 101, I usually read the e-mail during my morning commute. I then absorb the assignment/prompt and jot down notes or phrases on my phone to serve as talking points for my piece. Before the day ends, I write down my thoughts and hit publish.

I procrastinate to deliver the best kind of work I can give. I try to find inspiration from the things I encounter as the day goes on and then I write what I can. Even if I connect with the prompt I always delay hitting publish since I want to deliver something I can be proud of tomorrow.

Although that’s just how I work. People work differently and find inspiration in different ways.

So tell me, do you like procrastinating as well?


  1. I found that I wrote better papers right before the deadline. I guess because at that point, I didn’t have a choice. I had to write it!

    • I loved doing this back when I was in school. Somehow all my thoughts just flow right out of me. 🙂

  2. I used to love procrastinating. But since my life is run by a small tyrant these days, I have to write whenever I’ve got time… Ah, I miss procrastination 😀

    Seriously, though, not hitting publish as soon you’ve finished writing is a smart move. I always find ways to improve my stories when I come back after an hour or two.

    • I always try my best to improve my writing by not hitting publish as soon as I finish but there really are some days I won’t have the time to sit and think. But I like delaying so much I end up with a lot of drafts. 😛

  3. Creativity takes me so much time to find. Distractions are … sorry I was watching a show, what were we talking about? Nice article though. I kept re-reading it since I kept forgetting what I was reading about.
