Day 193 of 365:

{Motivate Me Monday}

Sometimes I write little post-it notes to remind myself to do things.  Actually, it’s more than just sometimes.  It write notes to myself all the time……so here’s my Monday Morning Mantra.  A gentle, firm, reminder that I will post to my bulletin board:

dear me

Should do the trick to get my butt in gear today, huh?

Started With Determination…

Day 158 of 365:

{Motivate Me Monday}

go to bed

So I accomplished a lot today, with regards to the novel, which I swear will be the death of me some days.  Is it normal to feel so drained?  Emotionally and mental exhausted from writing?  How do I know when I’ve had enough?  I don’t.

Some days seem longer than most.  Today was one of those.

But I got a lot done, wrote a heck of a lot and feel good about it.

Determined?  Yes.  Every day.

Satisfied?  Yes, but I still have lots of work to do.

!Finish That Chapter, Dammit!

Day 124 of 365:

(Monday Motivation, Except It’s Tuesday…)

Last Friday I mentioned in my blog post about still being on the third chapter of my WIP after all the months of writing every day.

And on the weekend, my mom gave me crap for still being stuck in the same spot of my book.  It was the kind of gentle, loving crap only a mother can give, which I actually love – but still….if Mom wants me to move along, I guess I will move along.

My intention for this week lies within these simple words:

next chapter-writing-the-girl

Or, as in my case: “you can’t start the next chapter if you keep RE-WRITING the current one.”

I am THIS close to being happy enough with chapter 3 to move along to chapter 4.


Now excuse me while I go and…you know….
