A Form of Distraction November 16, 2008

Today I started a new blog, one to distract, yet motivate me to write more–focus consistently. Lessons I’ve learned from other writers in the past week include.

*100 words a day, every day.
*set a timer (this really works… no play until timer chimes) I set the microwave to 60 minutes and write till it beeps, take a break, and then reset to 60 minutes.
*writing goals: weekly/daily
*enter contests to set artificial deadlines

So if you’re stuck, want to get unstuck, set the timer, promise yourself a page, and move foreward. It’s hard to write in a vacuum of no pay, no recognition. Self-discipline is the key.
