Writing Triangle

It was like I started every book by throwing myself at the keyboard and praying for a novel to shoot out of my fingers before the deadline.

It’s NaNoWriMo, and while many are participating, I’m 7 days late to the party, but still in it, nonetheless. I’m not writing a novel, but a screenplay. I found this gem of an article at The Pretentious Title Blog where a writer chronicles her struggles and successes. It’s definitely worth a read, and she does a great job breaking down how she went from 2k words a day to 10k. Her triangle metric is well thought out and worth considering for your own work.

Monday Motivation= Less Procrastination

It’s Monday. That means another week full of promise, and another Monday where I feel like I’m constantly behind and should be better. (Completely forgetting to set my alarm and starting the day in a panic will also do that.) But, with coffee in hand, I set about getting to work.

…only to scour the internet and not work. So coming across this article from Harvard Business Review was a great little reminder about motivation, habits, and how to start a Monday off right.

How to Beat Procrastination

Enjoy.
