how to put off working on your 2nd draft, part 2

besides fiddling on facebook, reading blogs, or reading another novel, here are more ways to put off working on your 2nd draft when the ideas just won't come...

-- write a short story

-- make up a pseudonym

-- read about copyright laws and pseudonyms

-- create a blog for the person you're going to pretend to be

-- look up templates for this new blog, but discover there aren't any out there that you really like, so you download a trial program that will make a template, but realize it's not what you thought it would be

-- look on Craigslist, pets911, etc for your still lost dog

-- go to the pound to look for your lost dog

-- write down the debits for your checkbook

-- blog about the whole thing
