What makes you stop procrastinating?

Like, for those people who are super productive, how do you stay motivated?

And for those people who procrastinate writing for hours/days (like me), what pushes you to finally do some writing?

I'll give my response first! Honestly, its kind of a variety of random things, but generally its just finally forcing myself to write a few words no matter how much I feel like I need to keep thinking or am not ready to start the chapter yet. Once I get a few words down, all I need to do is force myself to keep at it. To be honest, I usually tend to only be able to write about 500-1000 words in a sitting before I get distracted again tho and fall back into procrastination.
I realize at some point my book's going to need to be edited, and I stop pushing it off. Though with my earliest work that's especially difficult as I was in a completely different mindset at that point.
