Write In The Same Place Every Day.

Writers, like most people, are creatures of habit. Capitalize on this tendency to be productive. Plan to have everything you need to write already in your writing space so you can get started and keep writing rather than having to stop and get something.

Half of the job of being a writer, and finishing a novel, is productivity. When you write in the same place every day, you’re essentially training your brain to get into a “writing mode” quickly.

I tend to prefer writing and editing on my couch. Though when it’s time to plan a scene or plot then I sit at my desk. In order to facilitate my daily writing habit, I keep everything I need in a large binder. The binder sits on my coffee table and whenever I sit down, all I have to do is open my laptop and grab the binder.
