Last month, I participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and wrote 50,191 words of my second novel, Redemption. I'm still chugging away on the first draft. I estimate that it'll end up around 80,000 words, like the first draft of Renegades did. For me, the hardest part of writing the first draft is finding the time to write it. Unless you're being bankrolled by your parents or independently wealthy (lucky you!), you likely have a day job and other responsibilities like families, pets, etc. While writing a first draft, you have to be selfish about your writing time. I went to Las Vegas for Thanksgiving with my boyfriend and brother, and even there, I passed on activities and gambling (probably best for my wallet) to make sure I hit my word count for NaNoWriMo. You may have to wake up earlier or do multiple 15 minute writing sprints throughout the day--whatever works for you--to get it done, but you have to be consistent unless it'll either take much longer than necessary or it won't get finished.
Once you've carved out time to write, you just need to write. Sounds easy, huh? Some days it is, and some days it isn't. Even on the days when you sit down and you can't think of what to write and stare at your computer for a while, you just need to start typing. This is where your outline comes into play. As you're writing, you may deviate from your outline, which is fine (I actually encourage it), but when you're stuck, go to where you are in your outline and just go.
