Set Small Concrete Deadlines for Yourself.

If you’re writing a novel and it is taking longer than you’d like, create small deadlines – writing three pages a day, one chapter a month or whatever – to help you reach your ultimate goal of finishing your novel.

Personally, I’ve set the goal to write 1000 a day or about 7000 a week. I don’t always meet the daily goal but the weekly goal is a must! It feels great to meet your writing goals and of course accomplishing each small goal brings you closer to completion and publication.
