Here I am! Back from the mountains and ready to go... kind of.
As an unpublished writer fueled by hopes, dreams, and gathering as much knowledge as I can, there are certain mysteries of published writers that leave me in awe. Maybe 'mystery' is a misleading word choice... or not?
Lately my life in general has turned ten times more chaotic than usual. All of our lives are chaotic, oui? But we have all experienced those periods when suddenly it's more of an, er, adventure than others. During these times and with my current epic daily routine, I find it near impossible to write. I try to escape into my writing, but end up being pulled back by real life.
When I consult blog posts dealing with this issue, the advice seems more like a slogan for the armed forces. "DETERMINATION! PRESS FORWARD! PRIORITIES! DEADLINES!"
Okay, maybe not quite like that, but you get the general idea.
I know even though I don't have "official" deadlines, I do need to hold myself accountable. No one is going to write for me, I know. I know. I know. I know!
My question I am putting out is about accountability. What are some tricks to better hold myself accountable to make my weekly writing goals?
