If you're smart you'll read this right now

Why do writers procrastinate? Writing in the Atlantic, Megan McArdle theorizes that it's because they were very smart when they were children: "If you've spent most of your life cruising ahead on natural ability, doing what came easily and quickly, every word you write becomes a test of just how much ability you have, every article a referendum on how good a writer you are. As long as you have not written that article, that speech, that novel, it could still be good."
