It’s now Day 5 on NANOWRIMO challenge. I’m still on the game. Last night I hit 7638 words. I don’t know what today will bring but I’m working hard to make my story continue on its path. I’m staring at my goal hoping it will inspire me to gather steam.

My tip for today is very obvious. As a writer, what do we do? We write. So here is one thing we should always remember.

5 – Develop a good working habit and write every day. You’re a writer, so write, write, write until your hands ache. Since I decided to be a writer, I have made it a point to write every day. It can be a blog, an article, a letter or something for my book. I don’t write all day long but I have set up a time of day when I write unless I have a deadline like doing a newsletter then I can be writing all day long for three or four days straight.

A Woman of Substance by Bradford

Here is a book that I thoroughly enjoyed and one of my favorites – A Woman of Substance by Barbara Taylor Bradford. Ms. Bradford has written a series on Emma Harte’s life which started on “A Woman of Substance”. She must be constantly writing to publish so many books on Emma Harte’s life.
