Hello again, Christian writers. Welcome to this week’s writing tip… or should I call it writing encouragement? 🙂

You know how we all wait for that perfect moment before we do something? Wait for a sunny day to do the washing (I live in England!), a day when nobody else is around to clean the kitchen floor, a day when you have nothing else on to write your novel… and then that perfect time is slow in coming and everything piles up? Then you feel bad because you’re behind?

It took me a long time to realise that sometimes we just have to get on with things without waiting for the perfect time!

The thing is, we make excuses (or, at least, I do; tell me I’m not alone!). How easy it is to procrastinate when there’s something a bit hard to do, something which will make us step out of our comfort zone.

One key I have found helpful is to plan – and by that I mean write down your intentions – and then just start quickly, without thinking, before you can persuade yourself that it doesn’t need doing right now!

Please do try it – not just with writing, with anything you have been putting off, and see if it helps. But it’s just one key – if you have any other ideas, please do share them so we can all encourage and help each other. 🙂
