When I’m in the process of writing a book, I’m more focused on planning it than writing the novel itself. It’s difficult to write the chapters as days, weeks, and months passed. The hype dies out and you have to reintroduce yourself back to the emotional and mental state you were in when you felt like writing the story. I don’t know how other writers do it or their mindset when they’re writing a novel throughout the year. But I’m sure there are days they’ll lose interest to even write a word. And I admit, I’m one of those people.
