How To Run Your Writing Session
When it comes to running your writing session, productivity is the name of the game. You’re going to want to do everything in your power to create a writing session that’s going to foster both productivity and creativity.
To that end, there are a few things you can do that will make things easier on you:
• Commit to knowing that your writing sessions need to change. This sounds like a common sense step, but it really isn’t. Your writing session needs to improve, or you wouldn’t have read this far. To that end, commit to the idea.
• Establish clear-cut goals for each and every day. You don’t have to get too complex in this regard. If your goal for each day you write is to get in a thousand words, then that’s a great goal to run with. Having goals makes it easier to commit to your goals.
• Avoid distractions. Turning off your phone might not be possible. If it is possible, then do it. If you want to get the most out of your writing session, then free yourself of as many distractions as possible. That means staying away from things like Facebook.
• Try to stick to the schedule you’ve created. Life happens. That’s understandable. Things can get in the way of your writing goals. While this is understandable, it is a good idea nonetheless to try to stick to the schedule you’ve created. If your goal is a thousand words, stick to that to the best of your abilities. If you want to work for an hour a day, work for an hour a day.
