Over at the authors’ blog for my forthcoming book’s publisher, I’ve written a post about my experience with a site called 100words.com, something I embarked on because last month I was stuck on several writing projects lately and, instead of focusing on one, I’ve been bouncing among them and getting very little done. My writing output slowed to almost nothing, and I was finding it very easy to play hooky and doing anything but write. So, my friend Scott suggested this. After all, anyone can write a hundred words, right?
Can you do it every day for a month, though?
I decided to find out. The answer, apparently, is yes. And several of the posts have ended up being parts of a draft for my next novel. Not bad.
So tell me: what do you do to reinforce self-discipline?
