MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE
Write whatever you want. But something short is better as it gives you a view of all the writing process, speeds up your learning and demotivates less when you write something bad.
Do finish your work and expose it to criticism as the final step.
Don’t overwhelm yourself by trying to follow advanced techniques early on. There is endless advice on writing, but in the beginning, all that matters is getting words onto the page every day.
Set small, easy to accomplish goals and build upon it. Focus not on the end result, but on the process.
Writing can be a lonely, thankless job, filled with rejection. But it can also be very rewarding when your text resonates with people.
Ask yourself why you want to write and what do you want out of it. There’s no problem in doing it just because but a strong reason will help you persist through the dark moments until you finish your piece.
To build a habit of daily writing, try to get three pages of writing done every day. It can be about anything and it’s important that you write all without editing or censoring.
Daily writing can be used to clear your mind, think out loud and troubleshoot problems, thoughts and anxieties. But before you start, figure out why you personally want to write more often as this will help push you forward when things are tough.
Your cue leads to your craving, which leads to a response, that leads to your reward.
These rewards can take any form, and as your habit gets more ingrained you develop a craving for the reward too, further developing the habit.
