You have an idea. Great!
You get the laptop ready. Great!
You write the first three sentences. And man oh man, they are awesome. Great!
Then you stare at the monitor for the next half hour trying to decide if that comma should be a semicolon.

3. Reward yourself each time you reach a goal. Preferably something that will get you moving or at least outside. Like say...a walk to the candy store. And if you don't live near a candy store, that's really sad.
4. Tell someone about your goal. Accountability increases your chances of following through. Lots of writers use twitter to give word count updates on their latest WIP. This helps motivate other authors as well.
5. Get unplugged. If you know your laptop only has a battery life of one hour, you'll write faster. No really, you will.
Now go set the world on fire with your awesomeness. I can't wait to read your book!
By the way, this blog was over 250 words. See how easy that was. Now it's time to reward myself with some left over Easter chocolate.
