It's going and going and going.
I wonder if I have any advice on "how to write a book". I mean, I am actully writing one, right?
Sometimes writers ask how they can write a book, a query, an article and I feel like I have no answer for them.
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.
This book gets written one word at a time. If I get up from this chair once, I get up a hundred times. There's the baby to right (after she topples) and the kindergartener to pick up from school and coffee to make.
One word at a time until at least 1000 words are written each day. Sometimes I write more, sometimes (but rarely) I write less.
It's not easy. Even the most boring topic is still writing, it's still creating. Creating takes energy, sweat, tears even. The guy who flips my burgers can still flip them when he's distracted, tired and cranky. Have you tried to write this way? But you still must do it.
One word at a time. That is the only way.
