The Wheel of Suffering: The Procrastination/Binge Writing Cycle: Summary of Blog Posts

In response to several inquiries, I am listing below the links to previous blog posts that explore the “Wheel of Suffering” for procrastinating writers. The basic concept of the wheel is that we perpetuate non-productive behaviors in a recurring, repetitive cycle of avoidance and binge-writing.
