So, now I'm going to leave my laptop charging while I take a dinner break and then come back and do another 5000. It is the best method for staying focused, at least for me. I love a good challenge and racing against the battery is sort of like a game. And it is a real sense of accomplishment when I make it!
I just thought I'd share that. I would be interested to hear from other authors that try this technique and if it helps! If you are a writer and you try this, feel free to send me a comment on my 'contact me' page. I'd love to hear from you!
