So, you’re working on a project, and someone asks, “How’s it going?” Do you panic? Do you wish you made more progress? Or are you comfortable with where you stand?
When people ask me this question, I typically tell them that writing is going fine. I keep it simple. Some writing days are more productive than others. The main thing I learned is you have to carve out time to write.
Create a schedule. The saying goes “people make time for what’s important,” so if writing is important, make the time. It can be tough to prioritize, but you have to try. It could be something as simple as recording yourself talking about a part of your story or making a quick note somewhere (i.e. on your phone, paper, computer, etc.). Pretty soon, you might fall into a routine. Even if it’s just a sentence or two, the words add up. Then, you’ll have a story.
