Pressure is a Good Motivator
If you're anything like me, you work full time and squeeze in the writing whenever you can. For me that means, sometimes weekends but mostly holidays. Fortunately school is out for the Christmas holiday and I've located and dusted off my most recent but neglected project.
I noticed that when I found it, the saved date was somewhere back in August. That's not great for completing it in the near future. Thankfully, I've got about two weeks to accomplish my goal of about 30000 words. I've made sure I mentioned my goal to several people so that I've created pressure and motivation to achieve my goal. Pressure is a good motivator.
