When 140 is too small and 75,000 is too big

I have been working on a new novel and I'm aiming at 75,000 words. But I can't decide if Twittering and Blogging are getting in my way, or helping me out. What I'm finding is that Twittering and Blogging are much easier so I do it often. But working through the story on FastPencil is more fulfilling and gets me closer to my ultimate goal of publishing another book.

So I came up with my Theory of Continuous Writing: It doesn't matter where you write, what you write or how you write it... just keep writing.

1. Tweet, Scribble and Share all day long to keep your ideas flowing.
2. Blog daily to practice writing complete sentences and tying ideas together.
3. FastPencil at least once a day to keep the novel moving forward.

When you look at writing from this perspective it's easy to see the value in each medium. The more you write, the better you become and the closer you get to achieving your dreams.
