Skip the boring bits!

by Katherine Lapin
(Edinburgh, Scotland.)

When I'm writing, I always find it best to write the bits I enjoy first, and slave over the middle bits later.

The hardest part, in my opinion, is trying to fit everything together, because often it can be very boring and sluggish. If this happens, skip the bit you're on and go on to the next exciting adventure, but remember to go back and fill in the blanks at the end!

This helps especially when you get writers block. If you feel like you've hit a dead end, move on to the next bit and write what excites you.

Add everything up at the end, and remember to go over it to make sure it all makes sense.
