You retire. :)  Actually, my book took years between all the interruptions and not the best way to write a book. I finally had an editor/book doctor I don't necessarily recommend try to find the common flow. Over the years, style and moods tend to change the writing. So, as I start my next book, it will be written on as regular a basis as I can give it. Daily. Faith in yourself and the book comes and goes. If you can find a champion who believes in your book, you'll get there soonest. Friends and relatives are suspect and other writers, depending on the situation, can be as well. If you can find someone who has no stake in it--only an interest in your topic, you'll get the most honest feedback. Take all feedback in a thoughtful reflective way. Don't dismiss it out of hand. Try to look at it from an audience's perspective.

Charles Ray just wrote his 3rd fantasy novel and we're talking a bit about how you find time to crank out a book:

I wouldn't mind sharing parts of my novel, In Makr's Shadow, to get feedback on the various points of view with Gov Loop folks who are interested in a "what if" political scenario. In my novel, several groups emerge from conservative/evangelicals who make the new government into a religion to the fierce radicals that seek total annihilation of the government controls, from moderates who seek only to coexist and others who seek change. Of course, what is really at stake is survival and taking back their world. What will it take to get the world back from the machines that control human communication? Any takers?

I just joined this group.  I wrote a novel, In Makr's Shadow, on what happens when people stop talking and the devices take over. The government in all it's wisdom turns the running of the government over to an artificial intelligence that tells us the most logical decisions with the best outcomes for the human race and prevents us from destroying our world. Let me know if I got anyone's attention.
