1. Write everything down.
I’ve found over time, that I write my best stuff when I write it out longhand on paper and then import it into the computer. Some people are also the same way, while others are completely the opposite.
My point with this step is make sure you write everything down. It doesn’t have to be perfect at the beginning.
2. Get a group of supporters.
I love that I have a group of supporters. They really are wonderful. Another good term for them is “people who are willing to give you a kick in the butt and remind you to work on it”.
It’s nice, when you are going about your life and you are reminded by people of your projects. It makes you live up to your word and stay accountable. If you said you were writing a short story.
