I’m lucky enough to be part of a great Writer Group that meets once a month, and we’ve been doing so for the past 3 years. Each month, we set ourselves goals and hold each other accountable. Because of this, in two months, I’m 50k words into my second book.
I’ve set a goal to write 25k a month, which breaks down to about 1,300 words a day (with time off for good behavior). Now, instead of allowing myself to be drawn in by this or that show, I sit my butt down and focus on my 1.3k words. Sometimes I do more, sometimes less, but at least I know what I’m shooting for.
This process seems to really work for me. Rather than thinking about my daunting light at the end of the tunnel, I have little glow worms a long the way to help keep the trail lit.
Happy writing everyone!
