A number of people I know are participating in National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. This is an ambitious and certainly worthy goal, especially for those trying to pen their first books. The good news is: It can be done. Unfortunately, I’ve heard some of these folks mention that they’ve hit snags, that “I couldn’t get going this morning” or “I ended up watching television instead of writing.” Writers need to get into a rhythm and that means finding that same two-hour period, or whatever amount of time alloted to writing, each day. Missing one day can often lead to skipping two and three days. The head of steam built up loses its momentum. Next thing you know, you’re not writing at all. Of course, the best way to maintain that flow, the steady stream of words, is to get the words down on paper as fast as possible. Good luck writers.
