Morning habits are very important.It’s the best way to start the day off right.
The last month was very busy.One important thing which helps me is writing my morning pages.
Some times the pages are not used as posts.Sometimes they rarely make sense.But what it does is lets me keep writing.
The writing muscle like other muscles works best when you use it regularly.I have seen writing helps me calm down. Just like music which I listen in loops.On days when nothing seems to go right, when I am not feeling creative, when I can’t share stories, I write. Whatever comes to mind or I research and take down notes.That makes me feel happy again.
Neil Patel in one of his posts had mentioned, if you want to write more, learn to type faster!
That’s such simple advice but one which many ignore.Since going for typing classes is not a possibility, the next best way is to practice as best as I can.I am still pretty slow.But I am getting there.
Being a work in progress has its advantages.
When I write it’s difficult.Not the actual writing itself.The difficult part is making it into a cohesive post which will help someone somewhere.It’s definitely far from a masterpiece.
I am in a perpetual hurry. I mess up grammar, spelling punctuation sometimes all at once. That’s really bad.But inspite of the fear of ridicule. I write.
It still needs a lot of work.I write some more.
Every day I do three things:
Write a lot.That’s one thing I can do.Never give up trying.Whats the worst that will happen?
Will people laugh?People won’t read?Well, I believe there are people just like me, who will read what I write.They will understand my why.That’s why wherever you are if you ever feel you should stop writing because you are not good enough.Stop thinking that!Just write.Learn .Write some more.Just don’t stop.
Don’t worry.If God made you start writing he has plans.Your work is to do what makes you happy.If writing makes you happy, write.But never forget your why.Its the most important reason.
Read a lot about writing:
My all time favorite book On Writing . I read a few pages every day.It’s inspiring, it’s insightful and helpful for people like me.
Read a lot.
When work is fun, it doesn’t feel like work.That’s why book reviews are so much fun!I adore reading Fiction(mysteries and magic.courtroom drama),nonfiction (on writing ,blogging,self-help.small business.home decor ,gardening).The list is exhausting what I can read!But reading has two purposes.Entertainment and learning .until you read a lot can you become a good writer?
What do you think?
