What works for you in writing? A common rule is to write so many words every day. I’ve never been able to do that, partially because other things in my life interfere and partially because I sometimes don’t feel like it. When I’m blocked, I often leave a story for a while, like days or weeks, to let things marinate. Then, I find I have a fresh perspective when I return to the story. I tend to write more from inspiration, which many say is not the best way. Having said that, I do find that if I sit down at the computer and start writing, ideas seem to come, even when I’m not really inspired.
