|This is simply untrue! Well, at least in the U.S. |
So, you're a fiction-writer. I, too, have the dreadful disposition of having to form every though into a story to fit it. Of course, it won't be so dreadful when the check comes in, eh?
Tips? Well, for one thing, don't give up on the old notebook and pen. A computer is good for getting the whole thing put together in an acceptable format, but a notebook is where all the good corrections, side-notes, and margin doodles come in (with a special emphasis on the margin doodles). Also, I find that reading a book during a project can be a mistake, as it sometimes affects your writing style from chapter to chapter. That said, one can always find music to fit one's particular writing style; I don't find that it interferes too much.
I hope I have been helpful, though I get the distinct feeling that you might have already known all of this. Anyway, I try my best.
