So in-between losing 5,000 words in a technical glitch and losing two days writing for my laser eye surgery (it went very well, by the way). I’m starting to feel like I’m falling behind a little, so I decided “motivation” might be a good topic to cover.
How do you stay motivated? Writing a novel is no small task so how do you keep yourself writing every single day (or whatever your routine is) to get that novel finished?
For me… I work really well when I set myself goals and deadlines. If I don’t have them I tend to procrastinate. So my goal for Wrapped in Darkness is to write 1,000 words a day and have my first draft completed by the end of March. A goal that still stands despite losing two days and 5,000 words. So I’m going to play a little bit of catch up today.
