What I can say is that I scheduled my writing time for every evening after working a full time job. There were some nights I sat at my desk for two hours staring at the same paragraph knowing I wasn't happy with it but couldn't find the right words. Sometimes it took me two nights to get it right. But I finally got it! In my opinion if I didn't sit in my writing space my book would have taken a lot longer to finish if at all. You have to schedule your writing and commit to that schedule.

Don't go back and edit...just write it all down first, don't stop. When you think you've said all you want to say that's when you go back and edit. Never underestimating the talent of an experienced editor. They are worth every dime. Never, ever publish without having an editor give it a substantive edit. (less)
