Become a Better Writer in Just One Step

It’s the simplest yet often difficult thing to do, but always has results.

Write every day.

Writing every day shouldn’t be a chore, it should be a promise to yourself. It’s a commitment to growing as a writer, an investment in your future, and your future stories. And it doesn’t have to be much.

Find fifteen minutes. A half-hour. Maybe you can even do a whole hour, or more, some days.

It doesn’t have to be the same length of time every day, or the same amount of words (although daily word goals are another great motivator). Just some time to yourself where you can put words on a page.

Say you can write 200 words in fifteen minutes. That’s 200 words a day. 365 days a year, and that’s 73,000 words.

That’s a book. In as little as 200 words a day.

There’s power in the small things. So make a promise to yourself that no matter how long it is, or how many words you get down, that you’ll be there, doing the writing thing.

You’ll be amazed how easy it gets once it’s part of your routine. The hardest part is always when you start.

Are you already writing every day? Almost every day? (that counts too!) Share your tips and tricks for finding the time in the comments.
