I was wondering if you guys would share your process. I know for the most part it boils down to what ever works for each individual but I am always curious about the nuances of how we all get from point A to point B. I like the word count quota idea and the muse as Devon mentioned. Wealth of information in your article but wondered about everyone elses work habits.
Also, I do love the concept of devoting 120 days to finishing a project but how many of you have many projects open at one time. So far I am finding that i am most productive in regular life if I allow myself to mix it up and have several major endeavors going on and then go with one until i reach some natural stopping point or it gets stagnant. Then step away from that one while it simmers and pick up another that was waiting in the wings and so on and so forth until it all cycles around again. Not methodical but if I stick to one thing and try to just push on it is really hard. Maybe i just have to push through but I really seem to do better work and it flows nicely if i allow the change ups. Do you find you keep several things going and bounce around as one cooks and another fires up? Also, I am guessing that when one project get to a point of carrying a lot of momentum it might take over completely for while coming down the home stretch. that would seem naturally but i have never gotten that far before. LOL let's just say the article on finishing non deadline projects spoke volumes to me. lol
just a few questions, thanks
