Writing Hack #5. Do it Daily
Writing daily helps to stimulate your creative juices. Even if you can set aside 15-20 minutes to write, this will increase your writing dexterity. The more you write the better-inspired ideas will flow through your fingers. At a certain point, we become one with the keyboard with the ideas flowing through where we as writers become the channel of higher inspiration.
At first, it might be easier to journal and write about what happened yesterday, or about a simple subject with which you are familiar. The main idea is to take baby steps with your writing so you will not intimidate or overwhelm yourself. Good habits produce great results. Bad habits produce horrible results. Develop the habit of writing daily, and you will propel your writing ability into the stratosphere.
Why write daily? Writing is like a muscle, which needs stimulation, air, and exercise. Something good happens to connect the nervous system, the brain, and the hands. Even if you feel you have little to write about some days—you can rewrite something you wrote before. In this way, you’ll benefit from the habit of writing daily in the long run.
