Stop procrastinating!

Filed under: writing — by ichabodisitchy @ 8:21 pm

I’ve come across this document– 50 strategies for making yourself work. It’s aimed at writers and has a list of suggestions to motivate yourself to get down to some writing.

The suggestions vary from the absurd–paper your wall with Playboy foldouts– to the impractical– read a book a day for inspiration (if you read a book a day, what time would you have left for writing?!). But the author also includes some interesting techniques. For example, I quite like the idea of setting up a support group and tracking your output on a public site– I can imagine getting quite competitive if I saw that the rest of the group were getting way ahead of me!

  1. In fact, when you become a blogger, your book a day which you did manage quite comfortably becomes a book a week if you are lucky!
