The Undiscipline Sin!

Writing is a pretty simple process that is why everyone and I mean everyone assumes they can do it. However it is far from easy and to do it right is next to impossible. Now let’s assume that you are pretty good at this - and I am quoting the great Hemmingway here, “We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” No truer words have been spoken. In the end you just have to start writing and keep writing. Now comes the challenge; a greater percentage will talk the talk long before (or if ever) put pen to paper and keep doing it consistently. Procrastination is the #1 killer of would be novels. Getting words down approaches time, and putting the time aside for the most part takes discipline from the beginning until we build up an imaginative propensity.

The main individual who will thrash you about your composing is yourself, and you are the one in particular who can set aside a few minutes.

So what is the cure for this ailment?

I'm almost certain you recognize what you need to do, however here are my tips:

Ask yourself; to what amount do you truly need this?

Everybody – from a prince to a pauper or billionaire to broke) has a similar measure of time (last I checked it was about 24 hours per day) and you can for the most part determine what individuals esteem by how they spend it. Obviously, you need to adjust a normal everyday employment and family duties, however on the off chance that you have a free hour, what do you do with it? At Inside Edge Publishing we take on several ghostwriting projects so it is crucial that we adhere to a strict daily writing schedule to get projects done on time. For example if we want to finish a 200 page book in 30 days, we write 6 to 7 pages per day…simple disciplined math.

It all deals with planning. In case you're a parent, I wager you plan your child's exercises. What's more, for your normal everyday employment, I wager you plan arrangements at explicit occasions. You unquestionably plan social commitment and you most likely even timetable the exercise center. So why not pay attention to your composing similarly as?

Set aside time to write and only write without pause or interruption. Try not to get up until you have something to appear for your time. That might be structure or story thoughts or research notes or first draft composing, yet get something down. Until you get into the consistent act of delivering words on the page, you will battle with lack of discipline. The bottom line it to simply compose something without editing and alter it later but DO IT EVERY SINGLE DAY.
