162: Jennifer Burns on Ayn Rand: Goddess of the Market and Objectivism
Be happy with incrementalism. Write everyday. I have a schedule on and I’m very strict about it. I don’t try to force it, I don’t try to push it. I just try and do a little bit every day and I find if I’ve written everyday for a month, I’ve done this incredible amount of work.
So I think consistency is very much a part of it. And then you have to find a way to connect into why you’re writing and to really sort of feed that inner goal. So having questions or problems that are really intriguing to you because as a writer you have this unstructured time to write and you’re not going to write unless you’re really passionate about it.
Part of my writing practice is I don’t check my email and I don’t check the internet for certain times until I’ve done the writing. For me it works in the morning. And I do it by time and not by output.
