So what did I learn
There are good and bad writing days
(A good day will write 2000 words a bad day 500 words.)
You have to write everyday or atleast five days a week
(The first day is the hardest but if you countinue everyday, it becomes easier.)
You will have scenes which you love and sceneces you hate.
(If there is a scene you hate try changing it or put it aside never throw it. It may come handy for another story)
Write first edit later.
(Write, write , write forget about the spelling mistakes, sentences, and chapters just write. When you are done writing edit, change the sentences, spellings and rearrange your paragraphs.)
Your story will change as you write your first draft.
(New characters, new scenes, your leading character in your intial draft will become your supporting character. Accept the changes.)
If you hit a writer's block do something different.
(I started painting again afterr ten years. Doing something different really helps. Painting helped me to focus om something else other than writing.)
