This was one of the most relatable articles I have read. I honestly thought I was one of the only ones.

Who would have thought that CLEANING can get in the way of writing?

It truly does! Every time I sit down at my computer, I notice a crumb or something out of place and I immediately need to tidy/clean. One crumb turns into, “oh well I might as well clean the entire house!”

Hours go by and my laptop remains untouched. I tell myself I’ll write the following morning, however for whatever reason the following day is always my scheduled cleaning day and somehow there is always something new to clean!

This article was fantastic, it really put things into perspective for me. I’m grateful to know I’m not the only one with this problem — and this was a much-needed read. Writing needs to be put first.
