Headlines And Deadlines

I'd love to say that I spent Easter busy writing my novel. I really would. But I didn't. I'm currently on 5703 words and just not feeling motivated to write. The problem is that I have at least half a dozen other writing projects on my mind at the moment. So I have to learn to concentrate on this one first, instead of trying to juggle so many balls in the air.
My deadline for completing the novel is the end of the year, so really, I guess, I should be breaking that down and giving myself weekly targets and sticking to them. So 2000 words a week it is, which roughly equates to about 300 words a day. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!
PS Remind me in another months time that I should have written at least 8000 words.

300 words a day ... no problem! (I haven't written for a week now!)

So - hi. I am here to cheer you along. I can offer helpful(!) tips on 1, 2, 5, 16, (bravo for 18!), 19, and 20 (I am most jealous of 27!). I am happy to help with number 4.

Have fun,
A de-lurking Caroline

Dear Mrs de-lurker,

Thank you so much for your support and I'm sure I will be calling on you for advice when I eventually finish my novel.

PS Any help is appreciated for number 4!
