This tip will dramatically increase your writing speed.

You have tons of time in your day during which your brain is underemployed. If you’re like most Americans, you’re filling every idle moment of your day with noise. Let’s put that time to work for your writing project.

ASSIGNMENT: Write for one hour.

If you’re still working up to writing for one hour, that’s OK. Make sure you’re consistently challenging yourself to increase your writing time, so that you’ll get to one-hour writing blocks soon.

Write for the time period you’ve assigned for yourself, and then use the remainder of your hour to continue to build out your Novel Matrix plan. If time remains, read something that you love.

FOR FURTHER STUDY: Find more strategies for completing a novel project with The Novel Matrix book at, or the Novel Matrix classes at Writers.Company.
