The Colin McEnroe Show
Wed June 27, 2012
One of the many interesting questions about procrastination is whether writers are, as a species, the absolutely worst culprits or whether writers are just better at describing procrastination than other people. Here's Paul Rudnick on the subject:
“As a writer, I need an enormous amount of time alone. Writing is 90% 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. Having anybody watching that or attempting to share it with me would be grisly.” I could make a similar set of declarations. In fact, one of the things I procrastinate about every day is the writing of scripts for this show, especially Wolfie's intro script. Whoa! Google Alert about the Packers. I gotta check that.
