Small Accomplishments

I’m great at meeting deadlines, but it’s not so easy when the person I have to answer to is myself. Such is the case with many writers whose work have not yet been contracted. I find that some days I’m great at writing pages and pages and even editing too, but other times I go days and weeks without writing anything! In an effort to help myself get more organized I set a deadline. Needless to say, I did not meet that deadline to finish my revisions, but, and this is important, I did make progress! So two tips I offer to the writer who has a hard time getting the work done are:

  1. Don’t be too hard on yourself, especially if, like me, you have a fulltime job and other obligations.
  2. Celebrate! the small accomplishments and take tiny steps instead of expecting too much of yourself in too little time.
