How To Write Everyday

It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently.”- Anthony Robbins

1. Set aside a few hours every day just for writing

While this may seem like a very obvious tip, it’s easier said than done. It took me years to establish and then follow a writing schedule. It takes focus and discipline. For me, early morning and late-night are the best hours, majorly because I have peace of mind and also, I’m alone, as in the family (as well as the world) is sleeping. So

Start by experimenting for a few days, and you’ll know in a week or so, as to which hours of the day help you write to the best of your ability.

Once you have that, STICK TO IT!

2. Maintain a journal

We have become used to digital writing and blogging. But the feeling of pen on paper is irreplaceable. Apart from helping the innumerable thoughts in your mind find a place of comfort, journaling also helps you to maintain a record of your ideas, however mundane you think they might be. Thoughts can vanish as quickly as they come so writing them down can work as a catalyst to get things moving.

3. Have a daily target (X number of words or pages to be written every day)

Discipline is an important aspect of any activity in life. So if you’re serious about writing, it will need discipline as well. The simplest way to achieve this is by following a schedule, sticking to it, and aiming to achieve targets every day. Start small, like 1–2 pages or 100 words, and then slowly increase these targets, as per your convenience and time availability.
