Just a little helpful hint that has been working for me. I might have great intentions of working on my outline, but if I don't see my writing program on the little bar on the bottom of the computer, there is a very good chance, that I will end up baking or cleaning the house... what have you. But if I see that little icon staring me in the face, I will get sucked right back into working on the novel.
I guess for my part, opening up the program is just too much hard work lol. But the second it is done, I can guarantee that by the end of the day, work will get accomplished. Funny how our minds work!
