Like any project, we all start off with good intentions, but it’s easy to get de-railed if we don’t commit to a plan and develop the writing habit.
Research shows that if we set a specific time to complete a task and have a plan of how we will achieve it, we are 8 times more likely to get on with it.
Being specific about these details makes a difference to your level of commitment to your goal. Decide:
- Which days of the week you’ll write? Be realistic
- Identify the time of day you are most productive. Schedule some of this time for your writing project
- Where you will write? Make sure your documents and toolkit are handy
- Track your progress. Find out what works best for you and stick with it.
This is how I approach my writing projects. It works for me so it could work for you too. If you need support and/encouragement, reach out. I’d be happy to help.
