Set writing goals that stretch me = increased word count? more time to write?

Follow #acwrimo = emphasize the process of chewing over ideas

  • Try blocking out the first 2 hours of the workday for writing: this includes analysis, reading, etc.
  • Make a schedule, put time aside to work on writing, make it a distraction free zone (no email or social media)
  • Engaging the public declaration should be a motivator and helps others understand that you are seriously engaged in the writing process
