I am a writer; I’m actually finishing up my second book. As a writer though I’m an avid procrastinator too and one of my favourite methods to procrastinate is to read. When I was about 15 I would only clean my room when I finished the book I was reading. My motivations were not that I was so enthralled in the book that I could not be disturbed, it was because I knew that by cleaning my room I would probably find enough loose change to walk to the shops and buy another book and if I was lucky an apple turn over with cream. Now that I am over thirty I’m sure that my parents used to plant money in my room to encourage my cleaning, but they never did admit it.
