Do you set deadlines for yourself when you’re writing?

I tend to procrastinate a lot on writing lately :sweat_smile: So I tried setting deadlines for myself so I’ll finish a certain amount of chapters at a certain time. However, I’m not really sure if it’s helping me or if it makes me procrastinate even more :sweat_smile:

Do you set deadlines for yourself when you’re writing?
And does it help you to write more?

i try to give myself deadlines but
i’m a procrastinator at heart and i leave things til last moment, so no matter how much time i gave myself with the deadline, i’ll be writing at midnight trying to finish writing my thing to publish (and then i have to run things through my beta so i rarely ever make it to my deadline)

but also, one thing i have found that does kinda work for me? is telling myself i can’t start another project until i finish the one i’m working on
that motivates me enough to work on my writing sometimes

I try but always fail. That’s why I love the Tapas scheduling, though I seem to fail at that too.

I don’t because it will work against my creative thought process and flow since I keep pressuring myself that the deadline is coming closer.

Imagine setting deadlines for yourself :star_struck:
I can’t take myself seriously, so that wouldn’t help anyways :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
