Why You Should Write Every Day, and How To Do It

One of the themes of this blog is writing everyday. And if you want to be a writer, and especially a professional writer, you need to write everyday no exception.

Now what you write is the least important thing. You can write anything you’d like: fiction, poetry, a non-fiction article, etc., just as long as you write!

The blog post, How to Write Everyday and Why You Should, by Daily Writing Tips shares these tips for writing fiction, blogging or journaling everyday:

Fiction

  • end each day in the middle of a scene
  • have a target number of words or pages to aim for everyday
  • count planning, outlining and editing as part of your writing

Journaling

  • you don’t have to write in your journal first thing in the morning
  • pick a time of day that works for you and journal at that time everyday
  • view writing in your journal as a treat or reward

Blogging

  • write several posts at once and publish them throughout the week
  • having a deadline and sense of responsibility to your readers is a great way to stick with writing every day
