Techniques

  • Use a crummy computer to avoid distractions while writing
  • Use a different computer in a different setting to see a document with fresh eyes
  • As the document evolves, use an e-reader to keep things fresh
  • Format the text for each format, following guidelines for each publishing platform and device
  • Write three books to sell as a bundle (buy two get the third free)
  • Try disconnecting from the Internet to actually get something done

Habits

  • Create a morning routine, as you would for a job
  • Keep the “lunch break” brief
  • Treat writing — and promotions — like a full-time job
  • Some kind of media (like television) in the background
