Write at the same time every day, sit down for a set time and write something. Make it a habit.3. When your finished with a chapter, file it away for a while (a week, a month, a couple months, it's different for everyone) It sometimes takes some time to see it with a new eye and effectively rewrite it.4.

Be willing to get rid of your babies when you have to.5. Find someone(s) who would be willing to read your work and evaluate it critically, but honestly. Once you find someone you can trust, then trust them.6.
