But you refuse to give up on your dreams. You know deep down that you have a vision for your life—you know, that awesome life you’ve always imagined—and it involves writing, for sure. It involves being a successful author!
Others have done it, you think. Why can’t I?
You most certainly can. And here are 3 ways to wrap up your pit stop and get back on that racetrack!
1. Know that you’re not alone. Our Facebook group, Published Author VIP, is the perfect place to bond with other writers. Being around others who are continually finding ways to move forward—and sharing their secrets—is very motivating. Inspiration loves company! Stop by today
2. Start a success journal. This step launched me into the stratosphere. It’s truly amazing what happens when you start keeping track of your accomplishments—big and small— on a daily basis. Starting tonight, just write down 5 positive things you did today. It doesn’t even have to be writing related: “Carved out 30 extra minutes of me-time while walking the dog today by taking the scenic route through the park.” That’s a success! Pretty soon, you’ll be finding little ways to be successful just so you can write them down.
3. Write less. Yes, less. It may seem counterintuitive, but sometimes when you feel that too much is expected of you, you do nothing at all. Taking the pressure off—and just writing 250 words a week—is what the Page-a-Week Writers Club is all about. It’s for busy writers who don’t have a lot of time to write, but still want to make progress. Starts next Monday! Join us
By the way, if you’re not at a standstill, and do have plenty of motivation, you should still do all of these things!
We’ll be needing your energy.
