I realize that writing about New Years resolutions is so three weeks ago, but I’ve been thinking a fair bit lately about how to stay better on track with my writing in the coming months.
It isn’t difficult to stay focused on my freelance jobs; they always have deadlines, and that’s that. It’s far more difficult with my own personal projects. Time and time again, I’ll carve out an hour to work on my novel, only to be distracted when the sun comes out from behind the clouds, or the phone rings, or my thoughts start jumping around. I’ve been known to walk away from my desk to get a glass of water and not return for two hours.
I think I’m going to have to get back on the Jack Track.
