Want to write more than you write now? If you're not writing much, it's not because you're lazy, or you lack motivation, or you don't have time management skills. It's because you lack a METHOD.
I discuss My How-To-Write-No-Matter-What Process in Writing for Online Cash -- the ebook writing manual is packed with tips like this to help you to WRITE.
Here's a clip:
Wood Allen said 90% of acting was just showing up. It's true about writing too. But what if you show up at the computer, and just sit there staring at the computer screen? On those days, you need a mechanical process to get you writing which doesn't take thought, inspiration, or prayer, and which you can use for both fiction and non-fiction.
Here it is:
1) Idea/ topic/ subject
2) Ten minutes of research
3) Word lists
4) Timed free-writing for five minutes
5) Take a break
6) First draft
I developed this process while writing copy for clients, and was delighted to find that it works for all kinds of writing, not just for copy. The process tickles your right brain/ subconscious into creative mode and is a stress-free way to get your writing done.
Try the process. It works, because it's mechanical. You don't need to wait until you're "inspired" and you can fit the steps in whenever you have a spare five minutes. I do a lot of this work on my Palm handheld when I'm out and about -- the process is very portable.
* Note: you can switch Steps 2 - 5 around, doing them in any order you please.*
Try it. Please let me know how it works for you in the Comments to this post.
