Day # 7 – Distractions – Stay Away from Self Help Blogs!!!

leave a comment »

Don’t get distracted. That’s the tip for the day. That’s it.  Nothing fancy.

It’s the end of the 1st week and you may begin doubting yourself, finding that you are a little more distracted….don’t.  Don’t get distracted from the task at hand which is…complete your novel by any means necessary.  (Yes…the MalcolmX approach.  Who knew he would have literary reference outside of his autobiography).

STAY AWAY FROM SELF HELP LITERATURE.  If you’re reading…you’re not writing. This is a direct quote from hotdogladies blog.  I totally agree.  When you are doing one thing you can’t be doing another.

This is the end of your first week and you may have had some fails and some successes, this is not an excuse to slack off or quit…don’t get distracted.  That’s all they are…fails and successes.  This doesn’t only apply to those doing nanowrimo.  This applies to every aspect of your life.  If you are aiming towards a goal distraction is your worst enemy.  I repeat…DO NOT GET DISTRACTED!!  Put down that blog, vlog, e-mail, book,  and stay MOTIVATED!

Procrastination: If you do get distracted.  Make sure you’re reading something motivational.

Motivation: Distraction is a test of wills you’re stronger than that! 😉
