F = Focus Focus Focus
Ernest Hemingway stayed in hotels to complete his manuscripts. Virginia Woolf had a room of her own. The rest of us, well, we need to develop strategies to stay focused on projects.
Five helpful hints incorporate the wisdom from organizing gurus:
1) Have a written plan for the project
2) Have a written schedule of all life activities
3) Write out each time allotment for each task
(include time limits for facebook, email & twitter)
4) Stick with the plan
5) Get help with other activities, anticipate glitches and protect your writing time
A writer's life can be amazingly busy. Keep goals in the forefront.
Focus, Focus, Focus!
