I was checking out some writer’s websites and ran across an interesting piece on Neil Gaiman’s blog. He was talking about meeting Stephen King and said, “I think the most important thing I learned from Stephen King I learned as a teenager, reading King’s book of essays on horror and on writing, Danse Macabre. In there he points out that if you just write a page a day, just 300 words, at the end of a year you’d have a novel. It was immensely reassuring – suddenly something huge and impossible became strangely easy. As an adult, it’s how I’ve written books I haven’t had the time to write, like my children’s novel Coraline.”
That sound do-able. 300 words a day. I wrote 500+ today for my assignment for the upcoming WIFYR conference. Very encouraging.
