Everyone that I meet wants to write a book. Seriously! I hear it all the time. I’ve always wanted to write a book. I’m going to write a book one day. What should I do to to get started??? My advice is always: Write, DUH!!!! Beyond fear, I think the #1 problem for writers is time. Especially, if you have a 9-5. It’s like when do you find the time to sit down and write. And if you are anything like me, the problem is time management. I won’t talk about my issues with procrastination or addiction to social networking in this post.
Well, I’ve found a great video for the aspiring writer. The author of this video, Yuvi Zalkow, has put together a video on how to write a novel, when you’re actually too busy to write a novel. He introduces a bunch of cool apps that you can download on your mobile phone that will allow you to write you book anytime, anywhere. And then he mentions other programs for your computer.
One of the programs that he mentions is Scrievner, which I’ve used in the past. It is a great tool for organizing and writing. I also like Write or Die. It’s a hardcore program that forces you to write. The program locks you out of your desktop while you write, so you won’t be tempted to check your facebook page.
Check the video out below… GOOD STUFF!!!
