When you feel like quitting, remember why you write. Connect your writing to your purpose. Take your inspiration from the reason you started to write.
I believe that the reason most people don't accomplish their goals or finish their projects is because the activity is not supported by a strong purpose. A novel requires dedication and a long-term commitment; you need to have a reason why that will motivate you for however long it takes.
My children were the reason I started down the path of authorship. That reason motivates me to keep my fingers on the keyboard. Each author has a unique set of motivations. But humans are forgetful. So anytime your steps flag and your pen wavers, think about why you started.
