I once read that a writer has to sometimes force him/herself to sit down and write at least 1,000 words a day if they wish to complete their work in a timely fashion. After finding several really good reasons to avoid work recently, I find myself back hard at it and am quite pleased with the results. I am now 1/4 of the way through my latest novel and find it flowing out as easy as I had hoped it would. For me research into history is an integral part of my writing process and something I greatly enjoy. I believe that it is the same for other writers out there.

All the best and keep writing.

Good day all,

Well, after six months of hibernation, the good weather is upon us and not surprisingly my willingness to sit behind the computer and write has decreased considerably. I suppose it's only natural, being an ebook author; I don't have any deadlines to meet with an agent or editor; it's up to me to keep the ball rolling.

Deciding that the morning will be split between the gym and writing, I'll just need to find that right balance in my life. If any authors out there share a similar quandary, I would love to hear from you.

All the best and keep writing about what you know and love to write about.
