Writing is hard. It's especially hard to write when it's the fifth, or fifteenth, or fifty-sixth day in a row where you wake up and don't do it. How do I convince myself to write so often? Here's what I do.
I am not a morning person. Mornings are a nice concept, but I don't have to experience them to know they happen. When I started writing, I realized that mornings were a huge part of my day.
This might be sort of silly, but I love mugs. I made a rule for myself to curb the habit. I don’t buy mugs unless they give me inspiration. It’s turned into a writing exercise that helps me improve my writing.
Today is a big day. I finished my first book. As I look over the book in front of me, I can’t help but think of the first story I ever wrote.
