  1. Love the idea of birthing a novel after the pressure of annual resolutions has worn off, but the enthusiasm for the new year is still fresh! I’m also a fan of Steinbeck’s process: two pages, no more and no less each day, five days per week, as many hours as it takes to create two superb pages that move the work forward.

    Steinbeck, John. Journal of a Novel. Penguin.
