We all know some days the words come more natural than normal. Some days the words imbed themselves in your brain and refuse to budge.
So how do we coax those sentences free?
Here is my discovery. My CP's call it a write-a-thon. We set a time to be online, load up Gchat and start the timer. When twenty/thirty minutes is up we recoup and give each other our word counts.
I'd never done this before, but I'm starting to find it useful. Maybe it's the pantser in me, but I've always worked better under pressure. Knowing that I've got to tell the others my progress really seems to spur me on.
But what about the days when I'm not doing a write-a-thon?
I suppose it's a little similar to the write-a-thon. I sit down and force myself to spend an hour writing. Even if it's just sketching out a couple of chapters, I feel it all counts.
What do you guys do to get the words flowing?
