I think I’ve finally hit upon a way to motivate myself to write more!
I sat down and wrote myself out a list of rewards. For every five pages I write, I give myself some kind of little prize. Most of them are inexpensive or free things- driving to the closest park to take a walk, taking a bubble bath, getting a pint of Ben and Jerry’s. But every so often I give myself a bigger prize, starting out with smaller ones like a new OPI polish and building up to getting a new dress from Forever 21 or Modcloth. When I finally finish my book, I want to celebrate by going on a weekend trip to Chattanooga!
I’m determined to finish this book! Maybe the reward system will motivate me to work harder.
And then I have to get ready for National Novel Writing Month in November.
