Day 10 of Stay Warm and Write Month

Hi – today’s top tip comes from the author, Matt Whyman:

Set yourself a realistic, regular word count – and stick to it. Even if you think what you’re writing is the worst thing ever, your confidence will grow as you progress. Then come the rewrites. A completed first draft always reads better than you believed, and it’s much easier to improve than an idea in your head and an empty page.

Matt’s book, Pig in the Middle, was published in October 2011. He is currently working on his next book, Walking with Sausage Dogs.
