How to Gain Momentum in your Writing

Today I'm over at the Insecure Writer's Support Group with an article about 10 Ways to Maintain Writing Momentum. Please pop on over to check it out.

In the meanwhile, here is a pic I took at Australia Zoo...giggle.


What's been happening for you lately? How has your writing momentum been going?

  7. Hi Lynda! The photo is so precious. I love owls.

    I'm gaining momentum now that I've finally settled on which project to work on exclusively. I tried revising one ms. while writing new stuff on another and it was just too overwhelming.

    1. Yeah, I've tried to work on more than one project at a time, but it really does take some serious discipline to do it right. I work far better when I'm totally focused on one thing.

    1. I felt a bit conspicuous taking the photo in the gift shop, but it was worth it.

  16. Getting started is always easy for me; it's staying the course that's the real challenge. Enjoyed your post on #IWSG.

    1. Oh yes, staying the course, especially when the manuscript is in total mess, is a difficult one.

  17. Love that image! My writing has been up and down lately - 2,600 words one day, zero the next, and so on ...
    I guess I'll finish my WIP eventually.

  18. I haven't seen those little critters. Too cute! My writing is a hard taskmaster ATM, but I'm lovin' it.

  19. OMG Those owls are the cutest. Maybe someone told them they were cute and they didn't think so, so it shocked them.

  21. That's one fantastic picture, Lynda. Love it. Those eyes. :) Oh my writing has been terrible of late. It's called fatigue mixed with a tad of writer's blog. Other than that, it's all good :))

      Good to hear things are mostly good, though.

    2. Don't tell me you suffer from chronic fatigue too, Linda.
