Avoid writer’s block– keep a process file

One way to avoid writer’s block is to keep a separate log of how you feel when writing: what worked and didn’t, questions you have about the character or plot or structure, doubts and concerns, and whether you got enough written today,

This log can get out all the nagging concerns that can block you– the unasked question that you’ve been avoiding, the fear that the chapter isn’t holding up or the suspicion that the character is too shallow for the role he or she needs to play in the novel. Each of these, if avoided, can lead to writer’s block.

I have started using this file and it has helped me write a lot more.
