Reading and Writing and Establishing Habits
It is a challenge to write a daily blog. But I do make the effort and that is how it should be for you as a writer. Each day, as it is habit to make your morning coffee or brush your teeth you must set aside time to write. Wether you do this for 30 minutes, an hour or more, it must become part of your daily routine – it must become habit.
So too must you read for reading and writing go hand-in-hand – one does not exist without the other, they are in symbiosis with each other. Read in the bathroom, read at the treadmill, read during your lunch, read while you are on break or while you’re waiting in your car in front of your children’s school. You don’t have to be voracious – gobbling up a hundred or more pages a day, you just have to read.
I know you’ve heard this advice a thousand times but it bears repeating because it is vital.
Until tomorrow – Write On!
