GTD and nanowrimo
I love working under pressure. Thus, writing under the aegis of Nanowrimo is highly rewarding, since I get to write all kinds of outlandish things, and people actually like it. Well, I like it.
However, that little procrastination demon appears, and moves me to do something, or not, and hence
writer's block. Bad block, bad!
So, it is with great glee that I present to you today Hack your way out of writer's block, from the brilliant mind of Merlin Mann.
The list is as follows, and I write it just out of necessity to get something for myself, Mr. Merlin. I am not plagiarizing you, and I would not think about copying anybody that has such an awesome name.
Eh, back to the list:
- Talk to a monkey
- Do something important that's very easy
- Try freewriting
- Take a walk
- Take a shower; change clothes
- Write from a persona
- Get away from the computer; Write someplace new
- Quit beating yourself up
- Add one ritual behavior
- Listen to new music
- Write crap
- Unplug the router
- Write the middle
- Do one chore
- Make a pointless rule
- Work on the title
- Write five words
Now, where was I? Oh yeah, killing kittens.
