The last writing post was all about having so many ideas that you're not sure which step to take.
While I don't run into that problem as much anymore, I do run into it a bit with revision. Somehow, when faced with changing something (even if it's really not a big deal, and even if I already wrote most of it in my notebook, and even if it's far more painful to not-write than it is to actually write), I can be counted upon to find six million other things (sand, in the old "put the big rocks in first" story) to take precedence.
Yeah, I know, it's called procrastination...sort of. And procrastination is often about fear - that writing isn't as valuable as other, more tangible pursuits. Even though I know, in my head and in my heart, that words are perhaps the most valuable treasures in human existence.
What do you do when you get stuck? Have you found a way to trick your brain into loving revision? If so, I'd like to hear about it!
