Quote for the Week

“Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up.” –Jane Yolen

Many writers find it challenging to keep writing. The trick is to keep the skill sharp. No matter what else is on the agenda, finding time to write regularly exercises your skills.

Even seasoned writers can get out of the habit. The ability never leaves you but it may become rusty, so a little writing each day is always a welcome way to stay practiced.

To get your book finished, arrange your schedule to write multiple times a week.
