I know this is easier said than done, especially if you have a job, children and other responsibilities, but it’s necessary in order to finish your book. I’m an early bird, so I like to work on my manuscript first thing in the morning. I have more energy in the morning, and my mind is more active.
I’m not much into making sure I write a specific number of words a day. What matters to me is that I’m working on my book every day. But do what works for you. Go over your schedule and work out the best time to write. It could be 30 minutes, and hour, but whatever time you have, STICK to it. If something pops up that day where you can’t write at your normal time, then see what else you have to do that can wait, then use that time to write. REMEMBER: You MUST find the time to write every day.
