So the unofficial theme this week seems to be along the lines of getting that first draft done quickly and efficiently. We talked about writing sprints. We talked about the old practice makes perfect adage. It all adds up to one thing: Butt in chair, and get writing.

Writing Sprints and Deadlines
Ever noticed how much work you can magically get done when

all guilty. Hi! I’m Katie, and I’m a procrastinator. I meant to get my
work done, but…. Now, your turn. I’ll wait. ...
Immediately I went into panic mode. I must have forgotten to put it into my calendar. I'd forget my own head if there wasn't a reminder on my calendar to screw it on every morning. Seriously, I'm a scatterbrain on the best of days. So, that means we (My writing partner and I) will have to ...

You can be a renowned Pulitzer prize winning author and still get a few bad reviews, so before you let yourself get too down when you see a low star rating appear on your book, take a step back and breathe. Now, don't read the review. Don't do it. It's never worth opening up that Pandora's box.

Did I Forget to tell You Something Important?
How do I make a Meme? So Yesterday I said you should be using Memes as part of
your marketing arsenal, but I failed to tell you how, or rather point you to a
