Writing A Book - It Takes Commitment To A Writing Schedule
Writing a book is a long process filled with highs and lows. Some days the writing comes easy, while other days the process is tedious and difficult. But the key is to work on a schedule and write a little bit everyday. When I started writing, I suffered from only writing when I was inspired and that's why it took me nearly eight years to finish a novel. But with more experience and much more understanding, I now know what it really takes to get the job done. You can't work through the writing hangups, the writers block, the procrastination, plot issues, characters that won't cooperate, boring dialogue, blah, blah, blah, without committing to a writing schedule and sticking to it. Writing makes a writer, not writing makes a wishful writer.
