Every writer dreams of “getting away”, of finding a time and place where she can really focus on her writing.
But what if “away” is a state of mind and that secret, hidden retreat is as near as your sofa or kitchen table or the café around the corner? It’s called writing practice and it’s in creating such a practice that the novel or memoir or story will actually get written. Through writing practice, every day becomes a writing day.
In this interview, you’ll learn:
- How to create a daily writing practice
- Tips and techniques for finding time and creating space
- How to get started (and how to keep going)
- Why and how to use writing prompts
- What stuck looks like and how to get unstuck
- How to avoid the critic, the editor and the censor
- What the 12 essential guidelines for writers are
