I have a deadline coming up this summer. It's made me look at where I am and where I want to go with this MS. Last week I even sat down and wrote a few plot points in a time line.
No! Of course I wasn't plotting. This was entirely different. I maintain my status as a pantster.
Really. No plotting at all.
How do you motivate yourself? If you have a deadline or a goal and you really need to get working what do you do? Do you have a special routine to get in the writing mood? Do you work on a reward or punishment system? I know each writer is different an there are many ways so I've been wondering, how do you do it?
