We all know the excruciating migraine writer’s block causes. Fewer know that the solution could be around the corner.
The journey of writing a book is long. It’s easy to become overwhelmed. While it might sound apparent, the challenge is often to get started.
I know you’ve been there. That place when you built momentum and things got easier and easier. So be easy on yourself. Rather than focusing on insanely large targets, set absurdly low goals to get started.
In other terms, to kick-start your writing project, simply focus on the petite tasks that get you going.
It all starts with showing up. After all, if you’re spending your time cleaning your desk, watching TV or getting your laundry done, you’re not writing.
To get going, don’t focus on writing a book or even the first chapter. Focus on getting yourself in front of the computer. Then focus on writing one paragraph. Or a very brief outline.
Try it today and let me know how it works out for you.
