Best advice from this article

  • clear yourself from distractions
  • when you’re mindfucked, get out, walk a bit (or take a run)
  • daily minimum = 500 words (you can meet this even on the least productive day)
  • routine for starting in the morning and going home in the evening
  • re-read and revise often (whether directly or after hours/a day, that’s your choice)
