I have two kinds of days. No matter how much I try, it is always either one or the other.
It is either an On-Day, or it is an Off-Day
What else do I do now? C'mon think of something. Get off your ass! Jeez!
Why am I even up at this time?
Oh I'm up early. Have to get things done.
I hate you sunlight. Fish you God!
This and that and that is done. I feel happy about myself.
*Drools* Say what?
Now I will have lunch!
I should probably brush my teeth.
Get on train, go for work. Awesome!
I should probably get out of bed now. #fml!
Work is awesome! They'll probably promote me if I work this hard!
What's the point? I'll die an old man doing the same job. Why God, why?
I belong here don't I? I could work like this without taking an off for days at end.
I need a vacation. I need a camera. I need a car. When is the pay-day again?
Time to leave already? But, but, there is nothing to do at home!
Gawd! I thought this would never end. Home sweet home. Well not quite, but atleast it's quiet.
This movie, that movie. Book. This one, that one. I'm hungry. What restaurant will be open now?
What movie have I seen, does not require me to think, and is fun? Damn, I'm hungry.
I should go to sleep shouldn't I? Will wake up early and have another awesome day tomorrow.
What's the point. No sunlight. Awesome time to be up. Yayy!
What's the point? Why am I even up at this time?
Alright enough! Get up off your ass NOW!

And then, there are those days. Days without one word being written!
Or weeks. Or months.
Steps to overcoming the dreaded disease that all Bloggers face one time or the other:
Step 1: Denying Denial
Tell yourself that you ARE actually blocked and can't write even a few scant words.
Stop telling yourself that you're not writing because
a) There is not a good enough topic;
b) You don't have time;
c) The keyboard isn't good enough.
Step 2: Think of an Action Plan
Come to the realisation that all awesome things happen because of action plans. Figure out how you might possible go about getting around the block.
OR. If you're NOT an anal freak, skip to step 3.
Step 3: Get off your Ass
Come to the realisation that your endless procrastination skills are not constructive. To anything.
Give yourself a date. A deadline. Try and figure out a topic. Or don't. Just decide to go with the flow.
Step 4: Fight the fear
Refrain from asking yourself questions such as:
- But what if it isn't interesting enough?
- What will all my thousand readers thinnk?
- What if nobody comments?
Step 5: Truth Time
Tell yourself the truth that you keep buried deep, deep inside:
- Your posts are never interesting.
- You don't have a thousand readers. In fact, you might not have more than two.
- Nobody usually comments anyhow. Besides you, yourself.
Step 6: Final realisation
Come to the painful but beautiful conclusion that you primarily write for yourself. So who gives a shit anyhow?
Step 7: D-Day
After a further procrastination of a few days, and just type what comes to mind.
Hit 'Publish' and keep your fingers crossed for all the critical acclaim, tons of comments and showers of love from subscribers.
