What Happens When You Procrastinate

I was asked to do a guest post by Life with Subtitles's Fadi Bitar. It was the first time I was ever requested to do such a post so you can see why I was so syched!
Today's guest post is by the enormously talented Sareen Akarjalian from Ink On The Side.

I was asked to do a guest post by Life with Subtitles's Fadi Bitar. It was the first time I was ever requested to do such a post so you can see why I was so syched!



However, after a few minutes I realized that a guest post meant I had to actually WRITE something.



It was around this moment that panic set into my very bones. What should I write about? I knew I had to write an engaging and witty article so I would impress everyone. Thoughts and ideas flitted through my mind but they were too quick for me to grasp any of them. And, understandably, the only ones that I could grab a hold on to were, for lack of a better word, scary.



I was looking for any excuse to not work on the post. A desperate need to be distracted.



I kept writing words, sentences, word-vomit, only to realize their mediocrity and hit frantically at the delete key before anyone could see. After a few more hours of staring at my screen, I found the cursor key was taunting me. Flashing on and off. On.And.Off. That's when it hit me. My existential crisis.



That's when I realized it was literally midnight and I had to wake up early the next morning. I started typing frantically.



And finally sent Fadi my AWESOME post.



I'm sure he loved it...
