Your New Year writing resolution is still pretty fresh in your mind, I’m sure. You’re probably writing away madly and sure that you will be able to keep up the frenetic pace for the rest of the year.
Achieving Your Writing Resolution
Making Writing Your Priority
Consistency is boring for many, but it’s also the key to maintaining your writing resolution. If you know you are going to spend time writing from 2 – 4 in the afternoon, you will work the rest of your schedule around it. It’s a date with yourself, similar to what you do to go to the gym. It will also help the panic that arises when you know you have one night left to submit your piece for critiquing to your writing group – and you have nothing to submit.
Treat Your Resolution as a Challenge
Many of us like a challenge – even if it’s with our own selves. Challenge yourself to maintain your writing discipline for the next month. And when you achieve that, renew the challenge for the next month and so on. You’ll be so pleased with your progress, it will keep you going.
