FOR WRITERS: The Long Haul of Novel Writing

Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer EJ Runyon:

Found this on another page: “…believe in yourself and finish what you start. Most people have an initial idea and write while the fire is hot; when the moment of inspiration passes, they stop. Real writers can’t allow themselves to do this. Book writing is a craft, you’re building something like a house…if you write one page a day, every day, within a year you’ll have a book. If you don’t want to put in that time, you may be a great human being with bunches of good ideas, but don’t kid yourself, you’re not a writer.” So if you’re a novel writer, how do you do it? Are you a slow and steady tortoise or a page-burning hare? Share your secrets.
