I have tried a new technique lately that I think has worked really well for me. When I am finished writing, I stop in the middle of a sentence. Nine times out of then, when I come back to the page where I left off, I pick up that middle of the sentence and keep plugging on. I am really surprised how well it has worked for me. I never really had a problem picking up where I left off, but for me this makes it way way easier.

Someone in my blog roll post about this. I really wish I could remember who. Credit where credit is due and all that. Although a Google search turned up Hemingway as a proponent of this method, so maybe he started it. Hey, it’s good enough for Hemingway, I could do worse.

So, if you find you have a hard time getting started maybe give this a try. It works for me, it may work for you. Or not. Everyone has their own groove they get into. Just try it for a few days and if you don’t like it, move on.

The important thing is that you’re writing. All else is secondary.

-Keep writing.
