But... but... but... writing a book is SOOOOO hard. I don't have the time. I don't have the skills (we'll talk about that later), I don't have the space on my hard drive, I think my dog ate my laptop... RUBISH!
I try to average my novels at 90,000 words. If you divide that number by the 365 days in a year, that's 250 words a day. That's less then your average blog. Hell, I know some people who are blogging their novels. SO, take the next four days and set a goal of writing each day. It's really not that difficult.
The key is: DON'T EDIT!!! And I mean it. Just finish the first draft. Get your story down on paper, or in probably 99% of the cases, on screen. When your 109 days in and you realize you've written... (crap, I need a calculator) 27, 250 words, you'll feel so proud of yourselves. 2011, you can edit your work. You accomplished something really cool!
This blog is 250 words. Now was that so hard?
