Scribble and Scrub
Writing will never earn you a paycheck. Only rewriting can do that. Scribble all you want, just be sure and scrub up really well afterward.

"Everyone procrastinates. We put things off because we don't want to do them, or because we have too many other things on our plates. Putting things off—big or small—is part of being human. If you are reading this handout, however, it is likely that your procrastination is troubling you. You suspect that you could be a much better writer if only you didn't put off writing projects until the last minute. You find that just when you have really gotten going on a paper, it's time to turn it in; so, you never really have time to revise or proofread carefully. You love the rush of adrenalin you get when you finish a paper ten minutes before it's due, but you (and your body) are getting tired of pulling all-nighters. You feel okay about procrastinating while in college, but you worry that this habit will follow you into your working life."

I chose this article because I am that students who procrastinate on writing assignments. According to this article, I am the more “skilled procrastinator” because I use the excuse that I have to clean everything before I do my work. The author says, that it is a “trap” because I wasted my whole time cleaning, not leaving any time for my assignments. I always wondered why I have to clean before I do work. Now I know that I was using cleaning as an excuse to not do my work and to make me feel better that at least I used my time on cleaning than being on my phone but in reality it wasn't being helpful to me because I still wasted my homework time. The author provides sections that explains why students procrastinate and different ways to overcome procrastination. In one of the sections, the author explains that a student should set a time limit but do not over do the time limit, the example the author uses, “ ‘Must work on Hemingway essay all weekend’ ” this doesn't motivate a student so the author suggest to set a time limit for an hour or two and if the student still wants to continue writing, then do so. There are many other sections that I found very useful. I believe the author’s audience is for students who procrastinate in writing and for those who hate writing.
