Day 223 - After pushing a truck, a car seems easy!

Momentum is great - once you've got it. My problem is getting that ball rolling. I sit down and open my romance or my YA and the first sentence takes forever.

But I think I may have found the answer. I wrote a haiku before I got started. It took about 15 minutes, but something about forcing myself to write in a restricted format made my writing afterwards much easier - the flow just came really naturally.

I'm wondering if it works moving from short fiction to novel length as well?

  1. Interesting!

    I usually re-read the last two paragraphs of wherever I left off, make appropriate edits and then continue.

    It works pretty well. Unless it doesn't.
