NaNo Tip # 4?

Today's tip talks about a little writing tool I have sitting on my desk. It's a 60 minute kitchen timer. I get an idea of where I want to go with my next scene or so and wind that baby up. I ask myself, sixty minutes—how bad can that be?

And sometimes I dangle a reward at the end, sometimes just a break to walk around, make the bed, sometimes chocolate, lunch, whatever.
On a good day I do this several times a day. It usually works for me.

By the way, you may notice some Nano Tip Numbers are missing. We have the case of the missing posts.

And they were so brilliant, really! The Internet truly is a dangerous place.

Keep writing and you'll get through that middle.
