I’ve been writing for a year and some months and for some crazy and inexplicable reason, I’M STILL DOING IT. Which is why I thought this was a PERFECT topic to talk about today. Why? Because when it all boils down to it, IT DOENST FREAKIN’ MATTER how fast of a writer you are! As long as your goal is to write as much as you can everyday, YOU’LL BE FINE. (And I’ll give you cake.)
Writing isn’t an easy task. Not only do we have to deal with insecurities and stuff, we also have to deal with what the heck were going to write as well as deal with things like hiw FAST we write and whether or not were meeting our goals.
And that’s just the thing. When I first started writing, I didn’t focus do much on goals. Pfft, I thought I was a big to shot since I was writing a book and all.. but back then, yeah, I was still writing a book a month BUT I didn’t have any goals set. I knew I wanted to finish a book by the end of a month but that was it. I didn’t know then that it was important for me to dig deeper, SET INSANELY SPECIFIC GOALS.
I wrote it down and then it became a habit to include it in my everyday life. I can already see the results of it because I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel instead of just lurking along in the mud.
So, if you’re not already making goals for yourself, I recommend that you start doing that and see how the results come out and how much more ready and dedicated you are.

Over to you:
Do you guys set deadlines for yourself? If not, what do you guys do instead of doing that?
