Welcome to our 19th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the question on your own blog and leave a link in the comments. We'll be adding our own links here throughout the day!

Topic #19: What are your tools (erm, downfalls) when it comes to procrastination?

Michelle: When most, if not all, of your income is earned while you’re on a computer with Internet access . . .

Kate: Click on random link. Click on another random link. Laugh hysterically/bemoan ignorance . . .

Leila: I will just quickly cook a complicated curry with lots of ingredients. Then I will write . . .

Emilia: Then it's 9PM, and you're thinking, "Why pretend?" . . .

Kaitlin: . . . procrastination. It's one of my best, and most practiced, skills. . .

Amanda: In eighth grade, we were assigned the standard 'How Did You Spend Your Summer' paper. . .

Kristin: Actually, I'm a little tunnel-visioned when it comes to gettin' 'er done. . .

Kirsten: I have turned him into a dolphn, and elephant and a brontosaurus. . .

Lee: In non-medical terms, it refers to the uncontrollable urge to not do . . .
