The Value of the Minute

Take the time where you can. That’s our only option. A writer has to push. We don’t always want to write, but if we want to succeed in this life we have to.

The Process is hard. So hard, in fact, that we have to have a month dedicated entirely to drafting. If people commit to a word count, it forces them to write — that’s the idea, at least.

But what happens the other eleven months of the year?

Open the notebook. Pick up the pen. Engage your work when you have a moment. Just promise a minute or two. When you get going, you will go longer. Before you know it, half an hour has passed. If you are really lucky, forty-five minutes.

You’d be surprised how much you can get done with a couple of those short sessions. The more you live with your work, the better it will become.
