Last week I posted a review of Scrivener with a chance to win the amazing writing software. I asked readers for their best tips, and with over 50 comments, I found three general rules:
- Write a specific amount every day whether you feel like it or not. Setting a target word count or allotted time helps keep you accountable, and writing past the point of comfort (which is a good thing).
- Write everything down. Whether by hand, on your phone, or in your computer, when you have an idea capture it. You never know when you might be able to make something of it.
- Writing and editing are separate activities. when you’re writing, just get all your ideas down on paper without any judgement. Take a break and then come back to the writing with a critical eye.
And the winners are:
William Cooper (PC)
Matthias Sundberg (Mac)
Congratulations! Thank you to everyone who shared their great tips with us!
