November 19: Feel like you’re running out of words? Maybe you are. Just as an athlete has to refuel when in training and competition, a writer needs to refuel the words. Take an extra 15 minutes today and read some of that novel you’ve had at your bedside all month and been too tired to read. Read a newspaper. Take a glance at some research books on your bookshelf. But just 15 minutes. Any more than that and you’ll get so involved you won’t have time to write. Now go and write those words.
