I've been having trouble motivating myself, so I decided to ask a few of my writing friends if they wouldn't mind doing a little bit of a challenge over the weekend. Mine was fairly simple: finish chapter six. Well, I did that and continued on, loving that I was actually writing again instead of just talking about it. Too often I go in fits and starts with my writing, and if I could just get my writing brain on an even keel, why, I'd be a happy gal (I suspect if I ever find the secret formula to this, I will be rich).
I'm also happy to report that I will be part of a three-person, face-to-face critique group starting in September, and that will give me additional accountability.
Maybe I'm just one of those people who needs the accountability from other people in order to get myself to work.
What about you? Do you need to be held accountable to other people or just yourself where your writing is concerned?
