Like many things in life, a writer can move things along one step at a time.

Some writers, like my friend Ronwyn, write with amazing speed and achieve 3,000-4,000 words a day. Others (like me) struggle to reach a quarter of that. Don’t despair. Whatever your daily word count – every word counts!

A few years back I was urged to take ‘baby steps’ to get myself out of a writing dilemma. Good advice, for at the time I was considering consigning my barely started narrative to the scrap heap. I took the advice and instead of continuing to be frustrated that my writing seemed stalled, I wrote several small ‘test’ scenes. Before long I was away again.

I took it slowly – one step at a time.
