Avoid Procrastination

Avoid procrastination and gain some control over how you manage your time while developing documents.

One of the most important lessons writers must learn is to handle the language of time. Judging from the multitude of books dedicated to time management–indeed whole forests have given way to time-management
specialists–many of us have difficulties overcoming procrastination, knowing when to research, when to write, and when to collaborate.

Writing involves managing countless tasks. For example, writers manage research, finding information through primary research or secondary research. They manage collaborating with coauthors and groups, navigating through touchy egos, destructive and constructive criticism, deadlines, and even faulty hard drives. They manage archiving documents so that information is not lost and so old files can be found with minimal effort.
