To help you keep on track as a writer, it is a good idea to make a poster like this for yourself. Come up with 4 to 6 writing goals and write it on a piece of paper or posterboard. Get creative and make it something you WANT to look at. Put it in a place where you will see it, so it can remind you that it is time to write.
It might be helpful to also make a sheet that lists the reasons why you write, and one for your long-term goals. By looking at why you chose to begin writing that short story or novel in the first place, you can keep your motivation going and prevent any ideas of slacking off.
