‘“Do the needful” is an expression which means “do that which is necessary”, with the respectful implication that the other party is trusted to understand what needs doing without being given detailed instruction. ‘
They tell us this is the tough week. This is the week when the newness has worn off, the excitement may be dying down and the impact of what it means to go 50,000 words in one month begins to sink in.
This is the time to “act as if” with faith that the enthusiasm will experience a resurgence. That means, sit at the keyboard and write, even if it feels that you are just going through the motions. At some point you’ll be off and running again.
But maybe it is time to turn up the heat. What sort of writing assurances do you have in place? Do you stand to pay a high price for your laggardly ways? If not, give serious consideration to your methods of compliance. Maybe it’s time, not to do the needful, but to acquire a needful thing…
And remember! You CAN do this!
