Journal Rules

Ground rules for the journal:

  1. Write every day, even if you have not written for the novel, write as to why?
  2. Tell yourself the truth.
  3. Write about the influences. Film, music, books, art or people that triggered off the want to write.
  4. Thou shalt not lose passion
  5. Thou shalt not forget the goal. A finished book by end of December
  6. Thou shalt ignore people telling you, you cannot do it
  7. Start the first day by reading random pieces written before.

  1. I have tired a few times, but journals have never really captured my imagination 🙂

  2. Reminds me of the Ruskin Bond advice to young writers – ‘Write 1000 words everyday. It may seem like trash at times. But it will all be good in the end.’

  3. It’s important to be ready to capture by voice or text any idea which may float in your mind. Most of the times we get hunches when we’re not ready to let them fall on paper, but just writing the theme on a notebook/cell/laptop when it showers on you will become later a foundation to build the content from it.
