Repeating Obstacles

Posted on June 1, 2013. Filed under: Blogging, Resistance, Staying-With-It, writing, Writing-Exercises, Writing-Tools |

Sooner or later, you will reach a period in your life where repeating obstacles will block your writing. These may be happy times, sad times, or just a comfortable vacation.

These periods may be the most dangerous of all, short of death, to your productivity. The key to overcoming these is building in ways to learn to restart. After you have been writing for some time, and your daily habit is established, you test the waters by taking the occasional day off.

If you can survive the occasional day off, then after you have been writing for a significant period (months), you should test the waters with a period of two or three days off. The restart will likely be difficult, but the lesson to be learned here is how to restart after missing.

These planned periods off and restarts will help insulate you from periods of repeating disruptions.
