How To Write A Novel

  1. Sit down in front of your typewriter, laptop, computer keyboard.
  2. Hit those keys.
  3. Keep hitting those keys.

(And then I clicked “Save draft”, watched a little YouTube, and got ready for bed. I was about to turn off the light when I realized I hadn’t finished this list. So, you can just ignore it and me).

4. Repeat daily until you finish.
5. Then revise, revise, revise.

I am struggling with this simple process lately and even the best advice isn’t working.
