“Luck is not as random as you think. Before that lottery ticket won the jackpot, someone had to buy it.” — Vera Nazarian
This is for all you writing productivity nerds out there, looking for new ways to write this year.
You know who you are.
Yes, I was aimlessly wandering the stationery supplies aisle, when I came across a raffle ticket book. I was in Cornwall, so it's not surprising I had never seen one like this before:
I had to pick it up.
Inside were pages of tickets made of regular paper, not like the stiff cardboard affairs in the United States.
My mind whirred. How could I use this for my clients’ writing practices or my own?
(But really, I just had to fulfill the urge to buy a piece of stationary)
Then I thought about the practice of rewarding yourself after finishing a major project.
And finally, I thought about how unbelievably fortunate I am to be a writer — and to have found the joy in it again.
Why not combine the best of these techniques to maintain momentum and get the writing done?
