procrastinating‘Not Procrastinating’ Tuxedo Jack here with the 5th writing assignment for our blogging university class: Let Social Media inspire you.

Cheri at Blogging U says:

One of the goals of Writing 101 is to tap into new and unexpected places for post ideas. Today, let’s look to Twitter for inspiration. ….. Below, you’ll see five tweets: each tweet is interesting in its own way, and we hope one will elicit a response from you.

I decided to take today’s assignment and chose this tweet because I didn’t have to procrastinate to write it.

In my not so humble opinion, procrastinating is essential to creativity. Ideas must have time to leap about in your subconscious before they leap onto the page, and leaping as a form of procrastination is one way to do this.

Another way to put off writing until the muse appears is to gather information through osmosis. I am a firm believer in napping on as much written material as I can find.


A third reason to procrastinate is to save your creative ideas for next time. I’m a firm believer in putting things off in the hopes that someone else will do it.

Here I am procrastinating and kindly letting someone else work.

After all, my energy is precious and must be saved for really important things like shamelessly promoting my own merchandise in posts.

Thank you for reading our 5th Writing 101 assignment, and the last for this week. I look forward to a weekend of leaping, napping and not procrastinating since we won’t have any more assignments until Monday.

P.S. I highly recommend you look at Grant Snyder’s cartoons, they are amusing, cat friendly, and most certainly creative. His tweet is above, his website HERE, and Facebook page HERE.

    • Miss Blue, I am glad that this comment came through (my human had to approve it first as this is the first time you have commented on our blog… did you mean the Facebook comment box didn’t work?)
      Anyway, I am very glad you find such fulfillment in your furry feral feline friends. I was not feral, but Buffy Cat was… luckily she was rescued from a construction site as a youngster and only has a few feral habits anymore. I look forward to hearing from you again soon. ~Tuxedo Jack

    • Human here Gina, it seems like my comment boxes are both really buggy at the moment, not sure what’s going on. I thought it was a recent plugin I installed, but even with that disabled, sometimes I can type in the Facebook or this interface and sometimes I can’t. Hopefully it’s a virtual hiccup and will resolve itself. Thank you so much for letting me know. Meghan
