A List of Rewards to Motivate You to Write

I often need a "reward" to motivate me to write.  I wrote all four of my completed manuscripts by promising myself a treat after finishing a chapter, writing 1,000 words, etc. Here are some ideas to get you typing:

  • Purchase a new journal
  • Buy new fountain pens
  • Download a new book
  • Throw a dance party
  • Take yourself out to dinner
  • Chat with a friend
  • Make yourself a hot chocolate
  • Visit a museum
  • Wear your favorite outfit
  • Flip through a glossy magazine
  • Watch an hour of a TV show
  • Color in a coloring book
  • Read a few blogs
  • Surf wikipedia
  • Take a trip.

Now get writing so you can take a walk around the neighborhood. :)
