Planning to write is not writing.
Outlining a book is not writing. Researching is not writing.
Talking to people about what you’re doing, none of that is writing.
Writing is writing.
~ E. L. Doctorow
I gave my friend Lisa $100 and agreed to send her at least 1,000 words every Sunday by midnight. If I don’t, she gets to spend $10 from the kitty.
That buys me at least ten weeks of motivation to write – we’ll see what happens.
