I try a new thing to get me back into the writing habit.
Couldn't post because I was busy Writing the Damn Thing
The main character of my novel is Black.
Write from a place of internal truth, even if it is painful. You will be happier with the results.
I talk about transitioning from writing a novel to writing my novel, plus a peek inside my brain.
Be gentle with yourself. Cut yourself some slack and stop beating yourself up because you're not where you "should" be.
I finished the first draft of the first chapter of my novel. A few things I learned along the way.
I wrote a novel-length fanfic over the course of about 3 months. How did I do it? Can I employ the same strategies and tactics as I Write the Damn Thing?
I have a deadline for when I want my first draft of the Damn Thing to be finished.
When you Write the Damn Thing, the only way out of perfectionism is to get to the root of your problem.
