Have you ever tried to start a journaling habit, only to quit a few days later?Personally, my problem was always starting and stopping.I'd get excited about writing a daily journal, and for the first week, everything would go smoothly.

Decide what the book is about. Write the argument of your book in a sentence, then turn that into a paragraph, then into a one-page outline. Then write a table of contents to help guide your writing. Break each chapter into a few sections.
Set a daily word count goal. John Grisham began writing when he was really busy as a lawyer and new dad. He got up an hour or two early and wrote one page a day until he had a novel. A page is about 300 words.
