I've written three novels, have found that the energy required for me to write a novel requires large chunks of uninterrupted time. So I always carry a couple of notebooks with me to jot down ideas but don't do any serious novel work unless I have a week or two to fall out of the world. I'm writing a book of Haiku, Ten Thousand Whispers and find that I can force myself to do at least a few of these a day. I agree with you; you have to give yourself a kick every day and write something or you just might not ever write anything.

Every single writer's program, workshop, whatever revolves around this simple truism -- you have to find the time to write. Somehow. You have to kick yourself to write. Daily. You have to treat your writing as a part-time job to be successful at it.
So what are some of the tricks and hints you use to keep yourself going?
