I used to be the Queen Procrastinating Writer. I claimed writer’s block for years. I used it as an excuse not to do the writing I knew I wanted to be doing.
But once I finally dug deeper into what was really going on, I was able to make a discovery: there’s no such thing as writers block.
Writers Block is actually a surface problem. The roots go much deeper.

Good ideas. Eg, setting a deadline with some “procrastination days” or wiggle room, then just keeping the number of pages still due from bulking up. I use that on more or less a weekly basis; if my week’s chapter gets done early I have time to rest or experiment with my tools and plans. Or you can build a system other ways, eg setting a low word count for every scheduled writing day so it’s easy to start and you can enjoy how you overshoot it.
