One of the ways to keep focussed that I’ve found helpful over the years is the use of motivational quotes. So I’ve been collecting inspiration in this form for a number of years, reaching the grand total of 365 late in 2012.
I tried to select those that are a little more unusual, finding they have more impact. Then I married each one with a suitable graphic, and published them under the title Motivation is the Key – 365 Quotes to Inspire You. Hope you find them as useful as I do.

Just go for it. Write the whole idea from beginning to end, and then go back and read it, adding and changing stuff to make it easier to understand (try imagining you’re reading it to someone who knows nothing about the subject, if it non’fiction. For fiction, explain the picture in your head so it’s clear). After you’ve done that, give it to a friend to read, and ask them to tell you anything that isn’t clear. Act on what they say.
And for heaven’s sake, don’t forget to spell check, and be present while the spell check is happening so you don’t get obvious garbage coming out the other end.
