This weeks Tuesday Tip for Writing: Start Writing on a Daily Basis
The more you write, the better you’ll become at writing. So it just makes sense to get into the habit of writing every day.
You don’t have to start writing pages upon pages each day. Your goal is to form the habit of sitting down at your computer and typing words into a document.
You can write about anything. For example, you may want to write about your activities the day before. Or your plans for the weekend. Or something you’re grateful to have in your life.
Start mapping out a book or article, or outline blog posts. Write about anything that gets you into the habit of actually writing. You may even want to practice writing short posts which you could then use as content for your social sites.
Schedule a specific time each day when you will write. Then set yourself up in a quiet place, turn off all distractions (phone, TV, etc.), and begin.
It may be difficult at first to write every day. Just remember, as with any habit, if you commit to doing this daily you will be writing regularly in less than a month.
If you haven’t written anything today, do it right now. Here are some writing prompts to get you started:
