Top five tips for how to stay focused on your writing.


Hi Everyone

I finally sent my redundancy book proposal off to How to Books.  It took ages to write, proof-read, edit, proof-read, edit and yes you’ve guessed it, re-edit.

My  top five tips for how to stayed focused on your writing:

  1. SMART task yourself. Set writing goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timed.
  2. Keep a diary of each of your writing achievements to see how  well you are progressing.
  3. Make sure you plan when to write and either stick to it or reschedule it.
  4. Set time aside specifically for writing and ensure those around you know that you are ‘working’ then.
  5. Stop procrastinating and just do it.

Good luck.

Write soon. Sandra
