Be Your Own Cheerleader!

As a writer, we must set aside time to write. While everyone else is enjoying leisure activities or doing chores, we squeeze in a few words here and a few words there... Or do we?

One way to accomplish your writing goals when the world seems bent on stealing your time is to be your own cheerleader and reward yourself when you accomplish your daily (or weekly) goal. Often aspiring writers will have no one else to cheer them on, so we must find ways to motivate ourselves.

How do you motivate yourself to write?
