WRITING & SELF-PUBLISHING TIPS (cont.,)
• If you’re feeling time-poor or unmotivated about your writing, a good plan is to work out exactly how much time you have available to write each week.
• Draw up a writing timetable and stick to the schedule.
• During this ‘writing time’, minimise distractions. Turn off your mobile phone; take your landline off the hook; and most importantly close your Web browser.
• It’s a good idea to tell people who call you regularlyfile000786402730 that at a particular time you’ll be writing, so you don’t feel guilty not answering the phone or responding to messages. After all, if you were sitting in an office at work, you wouldn’t have time for long phone conversations or surfing the net.
• Apply this same work ethic to your writing time to help you meet your goals. Once you’ve established a routine, you’ll find that sitting down to write is just another normal part of your day, like getting up to go to work or brushing your teeth before you go to bed.
