cramming technique

If you are like me then the best way to write a story is through changing perspective. Immerse yourself into your character's point of view. Live their life even though they may be fictional characters. Become them, at least until you finish the piece.

So here's what I'm going to do to finish my first novel. My entire focus will be on it (Notice I used the future tense. It's because I'm still distracted and I have a lot of thought-purging to do). No distractions...just me and my taped interviews, research materials, pictures and computer. I'm going to lock myself inside my room and concentrate on the story.

Thermos of coffee - check!
Cellphone off - check!
I'm now ready to become a hermit in my hobbit hole.
See you when I'm done! :)
