Sometimes I wish a bad habit was like a character in a book that I could just “kill off” with a timely (possibly grisly?) death.
My worst habit is one I think I share with many other writers – procrastination. Though I haven’t been able to “kill” it, I’ve been somewhat successful in mitigating it through careful planning of my time and setting goals that I don’t allow myself to ignore. It’s not the best way to kill a habit. Really, my method is more a slow, painful death that seems to go on forever as the habit rears its ugly head at times.
However, that is my method for killing my bad writing habit. What about you guys? Any bad habits you’ve been trying to “kill” or have “killed” successfully?
