The Art of Mastering (or Avoiding) Procrastination

Are you thinking about the novel (or any project) you want to start or finish but you find yourself procrastinating about it? Or, is it writer’s block that has you pausing?

Do you find yourself wondering if procrastination and writer’s block are one and the same, or could they be kissing cousins?

Do you ever wonder why you’re procrastinating?

What would you say to learning that there’s a science and purpose to procrastination no matter how much you desire in accomplishing it?

Did you know that different brain waves affect your creativity?

Did you know procrastination can be dealt with head-on or subtly without anguish and pain?

Want to uncover the roots of your procrastination, so that you can get writing again or move forward on your dream desire?

Got a project that you’ve been struggling with in either finishing or starting? If so, come join my June 5-16 Master Class, Using (& Avoiding) Procrastination.

By using any or all of my methods offered, procrastination will never be your master again.

But, act fast! Don’t procrastinate about signing up! The class is limited to 25 people!

From time to time, Dr. Stout acknowledges that she procrastinates, but now, she knows exactly why she’s doing it. Considering she published 4 books last year and is on her way to publishing 4 or 5 this year, she feels she’s mastered the beast. Procrastinating is now a choice with reason. Her classes and presentations are about sharing what she’s learned, wanting to help others reach their greatest desires.

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time – and return comments. This group is all about connecting!

  1. That’s awesome how many books you published last year and how many you’re publishing this year. You’re right about solving the problem of procrastinating.


  2. Currently I daren’t procrastinate. Other people, F & F, eat my time.
    Add work-work, there’s none left. Less constrained, would my writing improve ?
