YOU can be unproductive, but so can a sack of potatoes.
DON’T BE A SACK OF POTATOES AND LEAVE RIGHT NOW.
Last night was the most unproductive night of my life.
I was about to start writing, but I thought, “Oh, let’s check the Go Teen Writers FB group! What a GRAND idea.” And I saw a post about starting a viral hashtag.
Six hours later, I was still tweeting. And favoriting. And retweeting.
I’ve written 85 tweets in the last twelve hours.
If you were on Twitter last night, you probably saw the #BeingAWriterIsLike floating around like a glorious disease. Here are some honorable mentions:
@brianawrites: #BeingAWriterIsLike All the fun of killing people, minus the jail time.
@NCWolfpuck: #BeingAWriterIsLike Why can’t my characters have the same sleep schedule as I do?
@sarah_ulery: #BeingAWriterIsLike researching TRAINS for the past twenty minutes. TRAINS. I didn’t think I signed up for this.
@carmelelizabeth: #BeingAWriterIsLike “So what is your book about?” *cricket chirps* *vase falls* *building explodes*
@scatteredwhims: #BeingAWriterIsLike Tweeting with countless other writers about writing instead of writing.
@bethyhope96: #BeingAWriterIsLike Creating higher expectations for your future significant other thanks to fictional characters. #comeonboys
@bethyhope96: #BeingAWriterIsLike…Having your browser look like a serial killer’s search engine. #Forresearch
@Naomihdowning: #BeingAWriterIsLike spending so much time on Google trying to find the answer to a question, you forget the question.
@theAimeeMeester: #BeingAWriterIsLike Slamming your head repeatedly against a brick wall because SURELY SOMETHING IS IN THERE.
So yes, a glorious night, indeed. Fellow Tweet warriors, I applaud thee for thy valiance. If you’re interested in procrastinating further, I recommend checking some more out.
AND KEEP THE HASHTAG GOING.
But otherwise, WRITE BECAUSE TWITTER IS THE KILLER OF ALL PRODUCTIVITY.
