Along the same vein as yesterday's tip, create a writing ritual to focus your attention to your novel. It could be as simple as making a cup of tea and listening to your novel's theme song. Or you could light your favorite scented candle and re-read what you wrote yesterday. You could stretch, do some yoga, or meditate. You could employ a writing totem, like a hat or sweater that you only wear when you're writing. Do something before you write, and do it every day. By connecting a ritual to writing, performing it is a subconscious cue that it's time to focus and get to work.
