A slight change of tack for this blog post.

I’ve always wanted to write, I’ve always felt I had some talent, but I used to be far more skilled in delaying tactics than I was in motivating myself. My motto was ‘Procrastinate now!’


That’s changed over the last few years. Perhaps it’s because I’m older now, but I’ve also managed to develop a technique set which has helped me apply my arse to my chair, and my hands to the keyboard. I’m using some of the techniques now, not only to write this blog post, but to develop a novel and a set of short stories.

I’m writing a very short book covering motivational techniques, and would love to hear from people out there and find out what tricks you use to motivate yourself. Do feel free to leave a comment below, or use the comments form to contact me. Anonymous posts will be fine, and while I can’t offer a prize for any ideas I use, you’ll certainly get a credit in my book, and hopefully a copy of the book itself.

Hoping to hear from you soon.
