The first, most important thing, is not to wait for inspiration to arrive. If you're stuck at a certain point in your story, leave it and try to write something - a scene, a description, some dialogue, whatever - that might fit into the story at another point. Even if you eventually decide not to use it at least you have continued to exercise your 'writing muscles'. Sometimes it's a good idea to put the whole piece aside and just work on other writing. I have to produce work every day, being a freelance writer, so I get my writing brain in gear on a very regular basis. When it comes time for me to do my creative writing I usually find that I'm already in the groove. So I would urge any aspiring author to write something every day. Eventually good ideas will come to you - just don't sweat it! It's very easy to get tangled up in psychological knots when the words aren't flowing, so don't beat yourself up. Just stay in the chair and hit the keyboard or scribble on your parchment. And always remember that you're in the privileged position of being able to spend your time and talent on a wonderful creative enterprise; it will sustain you through those periods when writing just seems like a chore.(less)

And it's a real bonus that I have no bosses to answer to or offices to languish in, and I don't have to get up at 7 am.(less)
