Now what you write is the least important thing. You can write anything you’d like: fiction, poetry, a non-fiction article, etc., just as long as you write!
- end each day in the middle of a scene
- have a target number of words or pages to aim for everyday
- count planning, outlining and editing as part of your writing
- you don’t have to write in your journal first thing in the morning
- pick a time of day that works for you and journal at that time everyday
- view writing in your journal as a treat or reward
- write several posts at once and publish them throughout the week
- having a deadline and sense of responsibility to your readers is a great way to stick with writing every day
The reason I bring this post up, is because the comments section is outstanding. So many people shared tips and tricks for what helps them write everyday.
Here are some of the things people shared:
There are a couple of things that have kept me going — one is that I know my
father reads it at work with his sandwich, so have to post by lunchtime; and the
other is that I get the occasional message from a reader who says that Three
Beautiful Things is helping them through a dark time — so I’m haunted by the
feeling that someone out there might be waiting for a post.–Clare
I find that I feel better when I write (is that the definition of an
addiction?). Hence, I write every day because I feel better.
Journal writing- everyday at 10AM
Short stories – written 6-8PM two or three nights a week
Having a book in progress is the easiest way to write everyday.
