One project at a time …

Many people probably suffer the same way I do: I start too many projects, or want to accomplish many things, but don’t actually accomplish much. I find that the more projects I want to start, or start, the less time I have to focus on each individual one, and most of my projects and goals remain unfinished or untouched.

Time for a change.

Personally, I think one of the best things I can do is to focus my attention on one project at a time, and set myself a rigid deadline that I follow. That way, with something in place, I’m more motivated to keep working until I accomplish said goal.

I have decided that the first project I want to work on and complete is a book. I have often struggled with ideas for a book, but this time, plan on taking a more structured approach using the principles taught in John Truby’s The Anatomy of Story. The book is intended for screenwriters, but the theory should be applicable to novel writing as well.

One project at a time …

I won’t set a deadline just yet. I know, I’m going against what I just said. When I begin working on the project, I will set the deadline and meet that deadline to the best of my ability.
