5B: The Motivated Writer: Using Athletes' Techniques to Keep Yourself Going: Section A
Limited Capacity filling up

If you're the rare writer who hasn't ever wrestled with motivation, confidence, and time-management skills, then stop reading right now. But if you've had trouble sitting down at the desk, or staying there, or concentrating on your own words, or if you've been struck by a bad case of imposter syndrome, then this session is for you. You'll learn how to push yourself into more productive and challenging work, through motivation-boosting techniques borrowed from sports. No matter what your experience with exercise, you'll learn how to use an athlete's tools like interval training, periodization, and the concept of training zones to help you embark on and complete your writing project. You'll leave the session with a plan for how to accomplish your short-term and long-term goals.
