Summer has officially begun in our house. My son is out of school and tomorrow I begin summer hours. I have to be at work at 7:30 a.m. and stay until 5 p.m. I get half an hour for lunch. The cool thing is I get Fridays off in the summer. Nice, huh?
Summer has a different feel. There is a relaxed attitude that permeates my life during summer. I tend to watch movies more. Watch TV series more. Read more. Act lazy more….gasp…that is really hard to believe.
The problem with that is, I need to write more. With an extra day at home, I need to get motivated to put my fingers to the keyboard and let my story burst forth. I wanted to have this novel finished by the end of the summer, but unless I put my behind in the chair and do it, well, it ain’t gonna happen like I want it to.
How do you get motivated? How do you push yourself to do something that you KNOW you will enjoy doing once you get back in the groove?
