The Key to Writing Success: Embracing and Meeting Your Own Deadlines

I must take these internal deadlines seriously if I want to turn my dream of writing a book into my published reality.

Margaret Atwood

The sad truth is that deadlines we set for ourselves are the easiest to break, to kick down the road until our book takes up full-time residence on Someday Isle.

I must take these internal deadlines seriously if I want to turn my dream of writing a book into my published reality.

For this reason I strive to make my deadlines more important than appointments with my accountant, doctor, bank manager or pastor.

These daily writing appointments are essential to my success.

Hard deadlines for my first draft, final draft and publication date are also essential to my success. The trick is to set real-world consequences for failure to meet your deadlines.

Amazon’s presale feature for books is a brilliant example of a deadline that must be met.

The upside to selling your book is obvious. You begin promoting and selling your book before you write a work. Sure, you don’t get paid until your book goes live on Amazon’s platform, but the hype and buzz you can create through this time is priceless.

But it comes with a huge downside.

Miss your publication deadline and you can’t use Amazon’s presale feature for 12 months. While means you lose out on all that marketing exposure and hype.

Put the power of deadlines to work for you and your book.

You may not love your deadlines in the moment, but you'll be grateful for them when you hold your published book in your hand! Click To Tweet
