At a recent writing conference, a prolific writer offered her advice on how to get a book written in a scandalously short amount of time.
And here’s the magic answer.
Know your weaknesses.
Do you accidentally surf the net? Go shopping? Polish the hardware? Check out the software?
What is it that stops and sidetracks you? Well stop THAT and take notes on your weaknesses. Make a plan to counteract each one. Make a plan that works to keep YOU writing. (Everyone will have a different plan.)
I like that. I know my problem now. I’m actually sidetracking because Scribbler’s Cove is one of my weaknesses.
My plan? Post this and get back to work. See you when I’ve met my writing goals!
