“The scariest moment is always just before you start.
After that, things can only get better.”
The best advise I’ve read from accomplished writers is when you’re writing a novel, to just sit down and start writing. Sounds easy, but unless you’ve tried writing when you’re not inspired, it’s a tough task to accomplish.
Here I am entering week two of 2016, and I’ve yet to sit down as I had planned to work on my novel which I started in mid 2015. Even though I have fifty pages finished, I just can’t seem to get going. I have cut back on my reading so I’d have more time for writing, but just can’t seem to get writing.
So, starting Monday I’ve decided to try a method I read about recently where you sit down, set a timer for 25 minutes and just force yourself to write. If I’m going to get anywhere with my writing, I need to hunker down and write – write – write.
