What are your summer plans? Hopefully you’ll rest … and write these next few months. Use your calendar to block off time to write, revise, submit, read and, perhaps, research your subject. Set specific goals and tasks for each week.
When you think of writing as a job, you’ll make time for it. Block of specific hours or days to work on specific tasks. Turn off your phone and maybe even the internet, too, in order to focus.
If you tend to get swept into one aspect of your project, like researching or brainstorming, set a timer to make sure you reserve time for other aspects of the creation of your work.
You are a writer. You will be an even better writer if you write regularly and take your writing seriously. Make the time and take yourself seriously.
This is your summer.
