Ground rules for the journal:
- Write every day, even if you have not written for the novel, write as to why?
- Tell yourself the truth.
- Write about the influences. Film, music, books, art or people that triggered off the want to write.
- Thou shalt not lose passion
- Thou shalt not forget the goal. A finished book by end of December
- Thou shalt ignore people telling you, you cannot do it
- Start the first day by reading random pieces written before.
