Will you be my accountabilibuddy?
Having an accountabilibuddy for my first draft worked great. I made a deal with Diana Rowland (author of Mark of the Demon, out this week!!! www.dianarowland.com/) to check in with each other every week. I’d let her know if I was making my writing goals and she’d let me know if she was making her workout program goals. (that I designed for her) It worked like a charm. She also read my chapters as I went.
I have people to read my finished second draft, but I don’t have anyone breathing down my neck to finish it in the first place. So I’ve decided that all of y’all are going to be my accountabilibuddies, by announcing right here, right now:
My goal is to finish my second draft by July 1st!!
So now I’m accountable and I’ll force myself to check in here. Makes no difference if anyone is actually paying attention, the point is, in my little brain, I’m now required to do the work and check in and report.
