I'm currently writing a story and I'm just curious how you guys and gals stay focused? Any tips? I write a lot of poetry and short stories but sitting down and actually writing a full book is frustrating :P
I feel that it's best not to force words onto paper. You could finish a book pretty fast by filling in the blanks, but it won't be a great story. Who knows - it could be years before you feel a natural inspiration to pick up where you left off. THERE IS GREAT MERIT IN THAT!
