Read as much as you write
How can you write a good story if you don’t know what makes a good story?
Clear your workspace of the unnecessary
Clean up the stacks of loose papers on your desk and delete the unused apps on your phone. Many writing apps have a feature that can allow you to write distraction free.
Don’t edit as you write
The first draft is about finding your story—it doesn’t have to be perfect. Take a break from your manuscript after you finish and then go back and revise and rework as needed.
Track your progress
Seeing your progress can motivate you to keep getting the job done. You can track the time you’ve spent writing or your ending word count each day.
Consistency is Key
Schedule time to write and stick to that schedule. It doesn’t even have to be daily.
