Write Every Day (?)…

… or don’t.

One of the things that is true about writing and writing well, is that you must write on a regular basis. The more you write, the more practice you get and (hopefully) the better your writing will get

But that doesn’t mean you need to write every day….

Writing everyday is a good practice. It builds a habit. It builds discipline. And once you have that disciplined habit, it’s easier to keep doing it- but some folks have lives that won’t work with that.

Some people have very full schedules. Some folks have lives where some days are full to the top and some are more open. Some folks have lives that are temporarily filled with necessary activities (major family illness, studying for finals, getting ready for the holidays)

If you’re in this situation, does that mean that you should give up on writing altogether?

Nope. While writing every day is ideal, the key point is to write regularly and to keep writing regularly as much as you can. If hands with laptop typing in nighttemporary crises mean that it takes four years to write your book as opposed to two, it’s still possible to write that book; but if you put your writing on hold until such time as you can write every day, you increase the chances that it will never get written at all

So write regularly. If you can, write every day; but if that’s not currently possible, please still find what time you can to write, and commit to doing it on an ongoing basis.

And write that book….
