    I set a specific goal and commit to it. It helps to connect with like-minded people and regularly update each other on our progress.

    I have two rules:
    1. Butt goes in the chair.
    2. Words go on the page.

    The chair is optional.

    When I finished my debut novel three years ago, the feeling of elation was unbelievably overwhelming. I’m STILL on a buzz with that, and don’t want ever to lose it. Apart from that, NOT putting unnecessary time pressure on my writing actually makes me more productive. I share with a writing group in Abu Dhabi who give amazing support, and my family and friends. Who needs any more than that? Enjoy the trip guys. Love ya! (BTW 100 words seems forever after 140 characters on Twitter!)

    I get out of the house. Trying to write every day, without fail, can be so challenging if you stay at home. I can’t get out every day, but I try very hard to leave the house and go to a fresh location where I can’t be interrupted, bugged, or cornered. I’m lucky to live in a pretty place, so driving down to the harbor to sit on the pier is great if the weather permits. It can even be a great motivator when the rain keeps me in the car. If I go to the cafe for a day, I don’t stick to my home-town, where every other person will stop to chat. I drive a few towns north, get a snack and a big latte, park, and focus.
    Change the scenery. Write the scene. Keep the cell phone OFF.

    Okay, I procrastinated long enough and just hit the send button. Don’t worry, procrastination was definitely not one of my tips!
