Writing Wednesday

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!
