I'm an addict.
If I don't get any...you don't want to be around me.
I need it.
I have to have it in the morning first thing. And then I have to have it when I start to twitch again around 2 or 3 in the afternoon.
I'm talking about coffee. Geez, gutterminds. What did you think I meant?
This month is NaNoWriMo. A few years ago I wrote what would eventually become the book to the right --->
This year, like every November, along with those 50,000 words in 30 days, there are family birthdays to attend, huge high-calorie feasts to consume, and Christmas music to try and avoid. (bahhumbug)
I have to really work to keep myself on track.
I know I have lots of friends that will check in on me and see how I'm doing. They will ask me if I have done my word count for the day, and I don't like telling them no. Having my word count on display for all the world to see is embarrassing, but I can still get the procrastination bug.
The only sure way I get things done is to want to do it for me, and to get myself motivated I bribe myself.
This month I'm rewarding myself with what I'm addicted to.
I found a great little company that developed "The World's Strongest Coffee." Of COURSE I had to get some of this stuff. Death Wish Coffee Company is a small business that makes FANTASTIC coffee. (Awesome gifts if you are doing some holiday shopping too.)
|Best Coffee EVAH!|
It was my reward when I hit the 25,000 word mark on my NaNoWriMo novel.
The best part of my reward is that I get a little taste of my accomplishment every morning. Along with clearing the cobwebs and letting me form coherent words from my mouth hole, my coffee now makes me smile.
My reward gives me energy to get more words on the page. It's a win win situation if you ask me.
If you are participating in NaNoWriMo feel free to buddy up with me (I'm Roxy Mews on NaNoWriMo.org).
What do you do to keep yourself motivated?
Comment and chat with me below. I'll check back later. Right now...I'm off to earn my next reward.
