Writing Tips - Day 1

Today is the first day of BubbleCow’s #wordswrittentoday Twitter challenge. To get involved simply tweet the number words you have written today with the hash tag #wordswrittentoday.

To help you along we will be blogging writing tips each day. So here goes…

Just write
The temptation is to self edit your work as you write but at the first draft stage you should just be writing. Focus on getting words on the page, freeing up your mind to work creatively. Let the ideas flow and flood out onto the screen (or paper). Once the words are down you can go back and edit at a later date.
You will find the process of writing this way is addictive as the word count rises it will spur you on to write more.
