Mini Tip Monday: Setting Up Your Writing Schedule

Do you have a writing schedule or deadlines? If not, why don’t you? Deadlines and writing schedules are something very important for authors. If you don’t have these things, don’t worry, this week here on Justice PR we are going to be helping you get these setup.


I really want to make this as easy as I can for you, so we are going to be breaking this up into several steps. Are you ready for the first few steps?

First Step:

The first thing you need to think about is how much you write daily now. Do you write daily? If no, why not? After figuring that out, the next step is to sit down and set some deadlines for yourself. I actually like to call them goals. When would you like to have your first draft finished or your complete draft of your manuscript finished? So take a few minutes right now and write these deadlines/goals down. I’ll wait right here for you.

Second Step:

Now that your goals/deadlines are set, let’s figure out how much time you need to set aside to write. Look at your goals/deadlines and figure out how many words you will need to write daily/weekly to achieve that goal. Also, remember goals/deadlines should be realistic. Give yourself time to get these things done!  Don’t push yourself too hard, but you do need that middle ground, give yourself a little push.

This is just the first two steps of setting up a writing schedule. Make sure you stick around this week and next for more steps to setting up a writing schedule and why they are so important.
