Response to What Keeps You Motivated While Writing A Novel?:
I maintain 3 working files which keep me focused and inspired keeping me on task: one with initial thoughts written down in a mad furry-it doesn’t often make sense in a linear sense but in my mind it keeps the ideas fresh and keeps me excited to finishing; another with images of characters, places, and diagrams of plot lines so I can visualize the details; and finally, a third which is the actual story draft. Depending on my state I work out of any 3 so I make continual progress without losing focus, creativity, or drive to complete.
