MANDO METHOD OF WRITING

Below is a post I stole from Armand Rosamilia's website. I had to. Snoopy's picture is on it. However, to make sure you read the entire post on his website, http://armandrosamilia.com/2015/08/18/mando-method-of-writing-amwriting/ , I only ripped off the beginning of his post. Thus, you must go to the link and read the rest. Bear in mind I didn't receive any cash or free books for this, so you know I must like the post. Maybe this will work for you. If it doesn't, blame Armand and not me. I am merely the messenger. Happy reading.

Mando Method Of Writing #amwriting

Yeah, I know, I know… I surely didn’t invent anything and calling it the Mando Method is egotistical and unnecessary unless… you’re me. 
I find it comforting. Shall we move on?
I am easily distracted by Facebook and e-mail and Twitter and a myriad of other time-sucks during my day when I should be writing. 
I have a modest goal of 2,000 words a day, 5 days a week, for 10k a week, roughly 40k a month, and 520k for a year’s time. People ask me how it is possible to have 150+ releases for sale, and I point out my daily goal. Simple as that.
Except, it ain’t always simple.
Most days it feels like the pressure to write 2,000 words in an hour so I can go play is overwhelming. I just want to relax for a day and watch Netflix documentaries or read until I fall asleep in my chair and take a nap. I’m old and lazy, what can I say?
But then I hit on the winning formula for me, and I have Jonathan Maberry to thank. . .
