Write daily. Whereas this might sound difficult to do, it isn’t, not if you love to write. Even if you’ve hit a block on something you’re working on, write something. Usually if I have hit writer’s block on a WIP, I will go to a generator site and work off of something I find there just so I’m exercising my “writing” brain. I have come up with some interesting short stories, some of which I have shared on this site.
It’s important to write something every day, even if it’s only a paragraph. Something is better than nothing. We are firm believers in this. That paragraph or even two sentences is something more than you had yesterday. We will admit there are some days you just don’t feel like writing. Do it anyway. Sometimes the days we don’t feel like writing are the days we become most productive. Sometimes those days produce the best writing because you have to sit there and think what you’re writing.
We will put this disclaimer in there. It is okay to take a break every once in a while. Sometimes, your brain just needs a day to reset itself. On majority of days, you should try to write something. You can dream about finishing the novel, short story, or poem you’re working on, but unless you’re actually working on it, you’re getting nowhere. It’s important to dream about the day it’s complete, but also remember, it will never be completed unless you work for it. Even if no one ever sees the completed version, it still feels great personally to have accomplished this task. We feel like we’ve succeeded every time we finish a project.
So, write, write, and write!
