011 Protect Your Writing Time - AMV NaNoWriMo18 Edition

Episode Summary

This is 11th day of NaNoWrMo. This weekend flew by! If that's any indication of the upcoming week, then today's episode is perfect timing.

Episode Notes

Let's protect that writing time


  1. Write with someone else also writing. Less likely to waste time when writing with someone else

  2. Use tools to help you find time to write when you are ready to knock out your daily word count goal.

Use visual planners

Pick a task tracker calendar

Timer-based tools

Pomodoro timers

Make the call

Have a standing time with yourself each day that you cannot miss, barring an emergency.

Remember all of us NaNoWriMo authors are in this together! If you need a writer buddy to help you stay on track reach out in the forum or try to connect with someone virtually or at a write-in. We're almost halfway through the month and the time is ticking. Keep those fingers clicking.

In the next episode, I will share some wellness tips to keep you healthy through the rest of the month.

Thanks for listening.
