So you wanna write daily, huh?
Pound out some prose each day of the week?
Sharpen your saw and move closer to mastery?
It’s actually a lot easier than you think.
How do I know? Well, after writing 300+ daily articles since my last birthday, I think it’s fair to say I have some experience.
Lucky for you, I’d like to share one of my most essential daily writing tactics with you now.
Ready for it? Of course you are!
Here it is:
Write at the same time every day.
Even better? Set your writing time as an appointment in your calendar and then show up to those appointments religiously.
Why is this important?
Two big reasons:
- Writing doesn’t just ‘happen’ — it takes your conscious effort. If you don’t make time for it, it won’t make time for you.
- When you write at the same time every day, you condition your mind to expect that activity at that specific time. Eventually, you’ll sit down to write without even thinking about it!
In other words…
If you leave your writing to chance, chances are you won’t do it. But if you commit a certain time to your writing, you’ll never miss a beat.
Of course, this is all just common sense.
But unfortunately, common sense ain’t so common.
So if you want to become someone who writes every day…
Mark it in your calendar and then commit to showing up.
Do that and you’ll be well on your way to mastery.
I guarantee it.
And when you’re ready
