My current goal is to begin writing a new (60 thousand word) book today and finish it by mid-March. To accomplish this I need to write 450 words per day. To save time I’ve outlined the book and determined the main characters. Because it’s a sweet romantic suspense and I write sensuous (adults only!) romantic suspense under my real name of Kathleen Rowland, I will write my young adult book under my chosen pen name, Rudyard Rowland.
Here’s the thing, I couldn’t choose a busier time to start writing a new series. I’m using “Easy Millionaire Secrets” that make some people rich but in my case– accomplish the task of writing the best story I can within a set amount of time. These are five minute tips for could-be-millionaires: 1) Gaze at a glass piggy bank. Successful people like to watch their savings grow. As I add loose change to my piggy bank, I’ll pretend they are words of action and concise meaning. 2) Take a millionaire minute. Compare best value. As a writer, think about what I’ve written and decide how I can “up the stakes.” 3) Create a wealth manifestation board. Start at the center that states your main goal. Create pathways. Mine are neural pathways of pictures and graphs about my story. 4) Whip out a 3″ x 5″ card. Jot down what it takes to achieve your goal. I’ve done that. I need to write 450 words per day. This will make my dream come true of finishing my 60,000-word book. 5) Toast to your accomplishments every week. Not a drinker? Neither am I, but I will acknowledge my small successes along the way at a Saturday night sit down dinner– with flowers (at least one!) and candle light. 6) Get in daily exercise, either a power walk or in my case swimming laps. Hard aerobic exercise turns us into power players! Getting our hearts pumping improves our brain-power.
