One of my favorite authors, Roz Morris, is featured on “Fresh Pressed. She discusses the sticky subject of daily word counts and how successful authors to meet their deadlines. Check out her blog, which is full of tips for writers. Her “Nail Your Novel” books have helped me through the rough patches of writing.
