Hi, I would like some opinions on the benefits of setting aside a fixed time each week to write. I think this could be crucial, especially around the halfway stage when inertia sets in. My only reservation is that I might be writing parts which are not as insightful as they would be if I wrote mainly when I felt inspired. It would be great to hear the thoughts and experiences of others. To date I have only written short stories, so I am just trying to find my way in the world of writing novels. I should add that I work full time and have a small child, so writing time will probably be restricted to roughly half a day each week. Thank you, and as a new member I’d like to say I’m looking forward to meeting you all.
