Around the middle of Coffee, Cats and Murder I lost motivation and went a few months without writing anything. If not for the constant pestering from one of my friends it may have become another one of my many unfinished projects.
And so I made her a deal. I would complete 1 chapter a week, and if I failed to do so she could punch me. Since making this deal I have been punched many times, but over all it seems to be working.
Now to see if I can finish the last 2 chapters without getting hit again.
Note: my friend never punches me hard, it doesn’t even hurt. It’s just a way to make sure I am writing every week.
