Self motivation

Self motivation

Right now I’m writing 2,000 words a day. Part of my motivation is that for every 100 words I write I get to eat a jelly belly. Writing is hungry work though, I sometimes think better when I’m chewing and I’m also trying to put on weight (in roller derby every kilo is a kilo to kill with), so I can also eat add much porridge as I want (mmm oats!) and drink as much tea as I want!


Today was a rough writing day and you bet I grabbed every jelly belly their moment I earned it for the first thousand words. The next thousand words went easier (and I are two small bowls of porridge) and when I completed my 2K my jelly belly bowl looked like this:

They are in my pocket to eat later ^_^

    1. I think the trick is to do experiments and then when one of them gets a good outcome a few times turn it into a rule. And I totally break this rule sometimes, so then I have to catch up to where I ate! Having an infinite food source (be it celery and hummus or porridge certainly helps too). This rule also works best if paired with other structures, right now that’s a timer and Devon Monk’s countdown logging (which I will blog about one I’ve explored it some more) :)
