"No matter how fast or slow you write, the only thing that matters is that you write... and finish what you write."
Yet another handy tip from the great Bill Martell
"If you've got a full time job and you're writing in your spare time, you want to maximize the time you spend writing." Bill says.
So he has these bins in his office on which he tapes the titles of proposed scripts.
Go on Bill, I'll let you tell 'em the rest...
"When I get an idea for a script, I start a bin. Then, whenever I have an idea for that script (dialogue, scene, character) I write it on a card and toss it in the bin. When the bin overflows it's time to write the script."
Hey that's clever, Bill, tell us more...
"Because I've thought through much of the story and have all of my notes in one place, I can usually finish a first draft in 4-6 weeks. When I worked at the warehouse I averaged about 3 scripts a year using the "bin method".
I never wrote a script that I didn't have a whole bin full of notes on."

Me, must be half way there...
My new script's rubbish...Now where's my bin?
