Writing Inspiration: Make yourself accountable

Making yourself accountable to another also is a good way of motivating yourself to achieve a goal. So tell you family you’re writing a book. Tell them it will come out next Thanksgiving. Are you feeling a little pressure? Good. Now go impress your family so you can show off copies of your book to them before everyone sits down to turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberries 365 days from now.
