I think anyone who wants to understand how I "work" will take every word of this outstanding quasi-effort by Slate's Seth Stevenson to heart:
Stop resisting and embrace your procrastination. Don't agonize in front of a blank computer screen. Don't sit around for hours—intending to start your work any moment now—only to find that in the end you've accomplished zilch, save for ruining your own day.
Except for Guitar Hero (I only play NCAA Football these days), he has reached into my soul.
