But, if you’re working on a novel, you just can’t force it.
Last week I had a few days where I just wanted to throw my laptop out of the window. I was drained of good ideas and distractions were more prominent than usual. Nevertheless I bowed my head and cranked out page after page of my novel. I’m determined to make sure this won’t be just another unfinished project, but seriously, what a mistake.
As I’m going through the pages and editing them I realize that all of them SUCK.
There’s no attention grabbers, no action and certainly no meaningful dialogue. It’s all just fluffy nothing words. None of these pages add anything to my novel but empty, useless space that no one really wants to read.
Take my advice, next time writers block hits but you need to get in your daily writing, DON’T work on your novel. Write anything but your novel until the ideas start flowing again.
