Have you ever decided you were going to get into writing, but never had the chance? Now’s the time! Set a daily goal and (try to) stick to it!
Come up with a word, page or time target for each day that you have to at least try to get to. A good website for a word target is 750words.com (I used it for rewriting).
It doesn’t have to be massive. It could be as small as 100 words, a page or 5 minutes (after you’ve actually started writing!) if you’re really stuck or don’t have enough time.
But if you get into the habit of writing something creative every day, it will get easier and easier until it becomes natural. (I will at least read part of one of my books every evening, even if I don’t end up editing or adding anything.)
If you do this over a long period of time, try to increase your target as you go. If you’re not used to this kind of thing, start small and go up from there.
If you want to, tell your friends and family that you’re doing this, so they can keep you accountable!
