Jess asked Sarah Dessen:

Do you ever suffer from procrastination when writing? How do you beat it?

Sarah Dessen Discipline is the key to writing. I always want to be doing something else: going on Tumblr, staring out the window, shopping, you name it. But I've trained myself that I write every day from 3-5, and so at that time if I am NOT working I am very much aware of it. Guilt is a great motivator! The books don't get written if you don't, as Anne Lamott says, put your butt in the chair. You have to show up. Period.
