Tip O'Day #27

The guest post by Jessica Knauss two days ago discussed using self-imposed deadlines so you’re not sitting around waiting for inspiration to strike, like lightning from the sky.

Samantha Kane has a similar but somewhat different take on the same topic.

Make time to write every day, even when you don't feel inspired to do so. Writing is hard work, and for most writers inspiration comes when we are working the hardest. You may feel like you're slogging through ten words a day, but the reality is that you ARE writing. You are putting words on the page and that is what gets books written, not inspiration.
