K is for Know your enemy
You have a nemesis. An evil, malicious, vindictive adversary who will let nothing stand in their way during their mission to prevent you from getting that book finished. Unfortunately I can’t tell you who or what that enemy is. Nope, they haven’t kidnapped my family and threatened me with returning them; they haven’t put a bounty on my head, or made me an offer I couldn’t refuse…
I can’t tell you who your biggest enemy is because I don’t know but there is someone who does.
It could be anything from television to pterodactyls but it’s up to you to find out what your biggest enemy is and kick it right in the cream crackers.
You might be a TVaholic, whiling away the evening catching up on soaps and *shudder* ‘reality’ TV.
You might be a voracious knitter who insists on finishing three jumpers and two socks before you can turn in for the night.
You might even be a closet Bieber wannabe and spend hours in front of the mirror clutching your Bieber Hairdryer™ as if it’s an official Bieber microphone™ singing your favourite WankerBieber™ tunes.
Which is perfectly fine, but don’t come running to me later complaining you have no time to write. Sacrifices will have to be made (Please let me sacrifice Bieber!) in order for you to write, and you must seek out your biggest time wasting enemy and destroy it. Destroy it with maniacal glee (Please let me destroy Glee!) and don’t look back.
By identifying your worst enemy you can acknowledge it and begin to move past it. You may feel miserable at the prospect of packing away your knitting needles or your BieberDryer™ but don’t fret…writing cures all! When your word count starts to pile up and those goals become easier and easier to cross off you’ll soon forget about your television pterodactyls™…trust me, I’m a writer!
