How To Write A Novel.

Write every day; same time, same place. Read every day. You have two pedals; writing and reading. When one stops working, use the other. Journal your writing process; learn to cheer yourself up. Don't binge write. Think: what does she or he want? Ask of every sentence - has it been said this way before? End the novel to know how it begins.
