The Shining is a good “scared straight” movie for writers engaged in the procrastination/binge cycle. Jack Nicholson portrays a school teacher who takes a caretaker job at a closed resort in the mountains because he wants lots of free time to write without the time constraints of his teaching job.
As often happens to writers with gobs of unstructured time, he does not make good use of it. Jack spends weeks just procrastinating, sleeping in, eating and avoiding his writing. Eventually he sits down at the typewriter and goes on a monomaniacal writing binge. When his wife gently inquires about his writing he becomes enraged. The next thing you know, he is demon-possessed and killing people with an axe.
This doesn’t have to happen to you. All you have to do is work on your writing regularly. A spoonful of words every day is good preventative medicine for a Jack-attack.
