There’s no shame in admitting you need help. We all do, at some point or other. Often, the hardest part is taking the first step. Maybe you don’t want to go public; maybe you don’t want to confess to your critique group; maybe you think you can beat this thing on your own. We understand. That’s why we offer this discreet tip to help you in your hour of need: a daily writing prompt. Oh, we know, you need to focus on your novel. No distractions (sure, that’s why you’re the world chamption at Tetris). Think of spending ten minutes of a writing exercise as…stretching. Warming up. Getting those brain cells limber before you plunge into the heavy lifting that is your major turning point. Get help — you’ll thank yourself.
