I’ve talked to a few people about their writing progress this month. Very few had it go as they had planned (but, then, when does it ever?) I ended up doing very little writing this weekend (surprise surprise), but have started to lay the groundwork for some good writing coming up. A big part of what I need to do is let go of some of my expectations of myself – they end up causing me undue anxiety and hold me back from the writing I could (and should) be doing. As the month is coming to an end I’m trying to keep in mind the point of DeDoWriMo – trying to end the year on a good writing note, and for me this year I think that means getting everything in order to be successful with my writing in the coming year.
What do you need to let go of to help you make more progress on your projects? Have you thought about ways to help yourself do this?
