In my internet meaderings the other day, I came across this post: How I went from writing 2,000 words a day to 10,000 words a day. Sounds too good to be true, right? It’s like when you see those ads for “How to learn a new language in 10 days” or “How to lose 20 pounds this month.” But, lordy, how I could use some good juju like this!
First there’s the problem of finding the actual time in the day to sit down to write – between my “real” job, kids, keeping the house in some semblance of order (including keeping people fed and clothed)… the actual “when” of being able to write gets pretty tricky.
So when I actually do get to sit down and write? Oh, the shiny things that await to distract me on the internets! And if it’s been a few days since I’ve had the chance to write, it’s a helluva challenge to get back into the right mindset in the first place.
So I was greatly interested in this method mentioned in the link above. I haven’t had a chance to give it a real test yet. Saturday morning – it’s on like Donkey Kong.There’s a little cafe in town that I have in mind where I’m pretty sure there is no internet connection. And I’m VERY sure (from past experience) they make a mean omelette.
How about you? Any tips for boosting word count? How do you “get in the zone?” I’ll take all the suggestions I can get!
