Writing Daily

Writing Daily

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.

Set Accountability Metrics

Come up with trackable goals like a number of words or pages per day. The specificity is important because being able to measure it allows you to keep track of your progress and better change your behavior. 

Make It a Regular Practice

Keeping track of streaks is a very powerful tactic for developing any new habit. Knowing that you have consistently succeeded for a number of days helps you push through the days who are unmotivated.

Other ways to foster regularity: writing in a different style or genre, and doing your writing first thing in the morning.

Be Accountable And Make It More Fun

If you have a friend who’s also a writer you can challenge each other to write in different styles and with writing prompts. He can also help you as an accountability partner.

Register Prompts For Later Days

Keep a notebook of writing prompts in case you run out of ideas or want to leave something for later. 

Don’t Worry About Editing

It will take you forever to write 750 words if you worry about format and editing while doing the creative stuff too. Most people recommend separating the two actions.

Get comfortable with having tons of typos and your writing being mostly nonsense. You have the option to edit it later.

Set Aside 5-10 Minutes

Setting your writing time during the morning is ideal as you haven’t gotten busy yet. But find what works for you and treat this appointment as unmissable.

Nothing will help you to get to know yourself more than translating your thoughts into words.

When you force yourself to write every day, you automatically become more aware of your thoughts. And self-awareness is one of the most important skills that predict career success.
