“You don't need special traits, special genes, or special motivation to write a lot. You don't need to want to write--people rarely feel like doing unpleasant tasks that lack deadlines--so don't wait until you feel like it. Productive writing comes from harnessing the power of habit, and habits come from repetition

p.129”
Paul J. Silvia, How to Write a Lot: A Practical Guide to Productive Academic Writing

“Revising while you generate text is like drinking decaffeinated coffee in the early morning: noble idea, wrong time.”
Paul J. Silvia, How to Write a Lot: A Practical Guide to Productive Academic Writing

“Writing time is for writing, not for checking e-mail, reading the news, or browsing the latest issues of journals. Sometimes I think it would be nice to download articles while writing, but I can do that at the office. The best kind of self-control is to avoid situations that require self-control.”
