Day one hundred twenty-nine of my 365 Day Writing Project.
I again had to fight the urge to go straight to bed tonight instead of writing. When I get like that I resort to giving myself little pep talks, saying things like, “just sit down and write,” “stay solid,” and “stay on track.” Thankfully, it works. I sat down and wrote. Only 500 words, but that’s a little over a page I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t.
Staying solid and on track is so important. Not simply to make progress on your writing, but also to encourage yourself. To be able to acknowledge and even celebrate what you accomplished each day leading up to today will help drive your ambition tomorrow. Be your own inspiration. Even when you’re tired.
