Happy Writing Wednesday, Friends! Well, Christmas is just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean your writing goals need to go out the window. I’d like to share with you a goal-saving method I learned from author Camy Tang. It’s called the Pomodoro method.
The Pomodoro method consists of 25-minute blocks of intense writing/editing/or other work task, followed by a 5-minute break. After four Pomodoro sessions, you would take a 10-minute break.
Even when I feel I don’t have enough spare time to write, I can usually fit one or two Pomodoro sessions into an evening, and it’s surprising what I can get out of such a small amount of time. If you’re one of those people who has trouble focusing when you ’re overwhelmed by a million things on your To Do list *cough, hack, like me, cough* or if you have negative self-talk in your head that gives you writer’s block *hack, choke, me again* then the Pomodoro method is for you. You can find free Pomodoro timers online, or apps for your phone.
Try the Pomodoro method today and see how you do!
