Once you get into it, it's a good idea to limit the amount of time you spend sitting and mulling things over. The best way is to do a certain number of pages in the time you have. The minimum you should shoot for is one page every half hour. A sensible upper level would be three pages a half hour if you're writing by hand. You might do more if you're typing. I know people who can write five pages in a half hour by hand. A half hour a page leaves room for a lot of thought, too much maybe. Remember, it's better to do your thinking on the page. And faster writing is better writing. Dash it off. Come back and work it later.
