Tip: Make a commitment to yourself to do your writing. Can’t write every day? Then write once a week. But make sure you keep that once a week as yours. Don’t give it up for the mundanities of life. Okay, if there’s a fire or flood, that’s different. But your significant other can’t find the ketchup? That’s his/her problem. 

Thought: “I write with experiences in mind, but I don’t write about them, I write out of them.” – John Updike

Teaser: Your character is involved in a car accident with no injuries. How does s/he handle it? Whose fault was it?
