So. One of my newest (and, let's be honest, only) writing goals is to write 500 words of the Defenders Big Bang fic every day until it's finished. And so far that's been working pretty well. I have two weeks to go before the deadline, and only about 3,000 words until I clear the minimum wordcount (10,000 words). Depending on a routine instead of inspiration has helped me get back on track with this thing, and having a specific goal in mind helps me sit down and get it done without wasting time. Okay, I still do waste time. But maybe not as much time as I usually do. I should
probably definitely try this with my other projects. It's one of those stupidly simple strategies that I should have thought of ages before now--which is probably why I never did. Oh well. I'm doing it now, and it's been a huge help.
