I call it the “be kind to myself”approach. It’s a little bit like this or this when things don’t go my way.
Here are my rules:
- Try to write every day.
- Try to write more than I think I can.
- Try not to start a new book when things get hard.
- Try to stay focused rather than rummaging through the cupboards or cleaning out my closets.
- Being okay with messes both in my book and in my life.
So far so good!
