Writing can be hard sometimes, difficult to draw out exactly what you’re looking for, while editing can be downright heartbreaking. Realizing your favorite scene or character serves less a purpose and more an indication of how tired you were when you cranked out that chapter during your lunch break is the worst. But it must be done!

Here’s a link I found to a list of ways to stay motivated and write:Β http://www.writersdigest.com/tip-of-the-day/make-time-to-write-10-tips-for-daily-writing I think #1 and #10 are particularly essential, but whatever works for you.

Then again, if lists don’t work for you, just be like Shia, a guy who grew up with hard times and then had the hard task of leaving Even Stevens behind for a successful career, and achieve your goals. Be them daily word counts or dreamy mirages at 10,000 feet.
