A minor tip for struggling would-be authors

Not that I have much experience in the matter but I realized that my mistake after my first novella was that I set a way too aggressive writing schedule.  I subsequently dropped that work.  But now I've picked up Bill Dodd's excellent "How to Write your novel in Nine Weeks."  I can't recommend this enough.  It's like a mini-journal/coach to help you motivate to get through those pesky word counts.

I've started up my second novella, a sequel to the first (which was planned when I penned the first).  I'm finding it much easier this time around to stick to his schedule.
