Is anyone else having trouble anchoring down with your computer to write? Summer writing has been a challenge. If it wasn't for Writeoncon I might have been lucky to get one sentence a day done. There has been the beach, sun, True Blood on Sundays, summer reading, fireworks, kids, more beach. Crazy!
Some Tips to get anchored
Put down all the shades and pretend it's raining outside.
Imagine your favorite character from True Blood will do bad things to you when you complete a chapter.
Have some bubbly and write whatever comes to mind.
Think of Lady Gaga's ugliest outfit, and just think how much more artistically gifted you are than her fashion designers.
Ok how about some real tips...
Take it day by day
Try to set a daily goal as to what you want to accomplish
Keep your goals simple. If it's creating a scene for your story while sitting on the beach or imaging a non control freak character like Edward while watching Eclipse. Come on you can't tell me he isn't one.
If all else fails bribe yourself. When I accomplish this sentence I'll go to Dunkin' Dounuts and treat myself to a Coolata
