We’re used to writing and reading most anything we please, with many negative opinions, and not fearing repercussions. Let’s hope it never gets to the point where this country sees events like this story in China.
Nick made progress on edits.
Dakota finished the draft of a book
Dylan has reader for Sand & Bone.
Do you have only a short time on a given day to write? Make the best use of scattered moments through out the day to make notes of ideas for plot, character, and scenes. Here’s a list of possible times to think about your story. Use your phone or other gadgets to capture those notes while driving. Think through your plots while exercising.
When you do sit down to write, you may find it best to just capture the ideas and not worry about cleaning it up. Keep editing as a separate (but necessary) task so you don’t slow down the creative process.
Do whatever it takes to make sure that when you sit down to write, you don’t get distracted. Some people keep an old computer, off net, just for writing so they aren’t distracted by email and F*ceb**k. If you’re going to want a cup of tea, make it before sitting down so you don’t interrupt yourself to get it.
Thanksgiving – no meeting
