While just about everyone has the capacity to write, the greater challenge is finding a way to stay on course and focused to make progress.
I’m curious to what ways people deal with it. If you are like me, then you have the attention span of a dog and if you don’t stay on top of something, it’s going to get forgotten about.
Typically, my tactic is to just write. Any sentence. If you can at least manage to get a few lines written, more is sure to just flow naturally after. I also generally use a set amount of words and lines to get done by the end of the month, to try and keep a consistent form of progress. Now, while that may be more effective for some, my success with getting things done is rather random and dependent on my mood. Either I can get tons done in just one or two days, or stay apathetic for months. Finding balance isn’t easy.
So how does someone do it? How do you hold a good pace and what is that you consider an acceptable amount of progress?
Sorry if there’s already topics like this, but I couldn’t find them.
