Increasing writing productivity

It goes by many names, “some day syndrome”, “one day syndrome”, it is a disease that afflicts want-to-be-authors and yet-to-write-novelists. The symptoms include, but are not limited to, slow writing pace, low productivity, abandoned manuscripts, and lack of writing moral. The cause is simple, thinking that maybe, eventually, someday, you will write a novel, and thinking that it is hard to write a first draft. The remedy is supposed to be writing the first draft with a time limit, preferably less than a year. Usually, people will choose 30 days. The key is completing your book so you know you can do it and can destroy any self doubt. I have completed 50,000 words in a month, but not a whole manuscript, that’s why, this month, I’m dedicating myself to finishing my novel. Maybe then, I can fix my abandon manuscripts.
