Is anyone else writing a mystery? Does anyone else spend hours on the internet before begining to write - looking at interesting sites, doing other work when now is the writing time, playing solitaire? It's very hard for me to start writing - and once I do, I often think its crap. I plow on, I try to be aware that I am procrastinating rather than doing something essential to my well being. Will I ever get to the point I'll just write without any messing around? who knows.

I do know that as soon as my class is over I intend to write 3 hours a day. Now I aim for 1 hour and usually write about 3 to 4 days a week. But i've got to get this thing finished.

Is anyone else writing a mystery? You must be kidding. Almost everybody here is writing some kind of crime novel.

If you're in the middle of writing something you have to boot it up and stay there for as long as your designated writing time. You can't go anywhere else. That's the way I do it.

Don't worry about what you think it is when you end your work for the day. Keep going the next day and don't look back until you've finished the book. Plenty of time then to cringe.
