The good thing about writing is that it is completely original. It’s not a race or competition, so you don’t have to limit yourself in any way. In order to create something completely novel, you’re going to have to let your mind wander without any limitations. Don’t set a schedule for yourself, and don’t force yourself to write. I’m currently writing a short story, and what’s great is that if you don’t force yourself to write, the current of words will flow whenever you feel it. But if you force yourself, you’re going to over think things when ideas itself can be simplicity itself, right in front of you, and yet you won’t see it since you are too busy looking over the horizon.
