Procrastination? Don’t feel like writing but want to hit your word count?
Writing a novel can be an intimidating task, so why not try something shorter?
For me, when I’m overwhelmed or feel too pressured by word count, I write something else. I like to have my blogs written and pre posted. In my lifestyle, I’m never sure I’ll have internet access on a daily basis, so writing blogs ahead of time reduces the stress for me. You’re probably laughing and thinking what stress can I have living on a boat for the winter, but I take my writing and my blog seriously. Self induced stress, but still stress.
How does writing in smaller increments help with novel writing?
I find by taking on a shorter piece of work, I often get in the flow of writing and can switch over to the novel. Even if I don’t, I’ve been productive and written something.
Does it have to be a blog? Nope. You could write a short story or an entry in your journal.
How do you kickstart your writing?
