I am about 83% finished with this information product I have been working on. I have the last bits to do. Everything is written down, so I know what has to be done.
On a good day, I think I've managed to knock out around 5,000 words. Yesterday, I think I managed maybe 500. Tonight, I've just thumbed through my note cards of what's left to do.
While there is some satisfaction in finishing a portion and removing its card from the stack and tearing it up, ugh.
There is, no doubt, a tendency to save the most boring stuff for last. Get the good stuff out of the way first, the stuff you're excited about, the stuff you don't mind writing about. Leaving all the other stuff until the end.
And, there's a double whammy with the last bit. You can't write it as though you are bored out of your mind; you need to write it with the same level of excitement with which you wrote the rest of the content. So, not only do you need to find the motivation to push and get it done, you also need to generate within yourself some level of excitement for those topics, even though they are so, ugh.
Anyone have any advice for powering through the boring bits you left yourself stuck with?
And, yes, I probably will be sitting here incessantly reloading the page, checking for responses, anything but to work on, ugh.
