Sadly I've still got to go out and buy a few bits and pieces yet, and I've put off the labelling until everything is gathered. Shoe fitting of teenagers is the worst bit, and still to be done...
I've decided that I'm going to set myself some rewards for getting tasks done- writing tasks that is. It might help with the motivation.
It occurred to me, when I glanced at the book shelf and saw a number of DVDs (history related) that I've bought and haven't had time to watch yet. So I decided that I'd reward myself with time to watch one of the DVDs when I reach a preset target.
My first target is to get the first five chapters of my novella written.
Now the difficulty is choosing which DVD to watch as the reward for getting to the end of chapter 5:
- Casanova -with David Tennant as the young Casanova.
- Becoming Jane- about Jane Austen.
- The Duchess- about Georgiana Spencer who became the Duchess of Devonshire- big hair and dresses a plenty.
- The first series of Poldark...
At the moment Casanova is in the lead...:-)
So do you use a reward system at all or just when writing is getting tough?
