We writers have been told to write every day—no matter what. I would agree with that, but I think it really doesn’t matter what we write, as long as we stay in the habit of writing.
Letter writing, blogging, answering emails, writing Thank-You notes, and so on. Let’s not forget the occasional magazine article or Letter to the Editor. The important thing is not to get lazy. Writing is just like any other habit. If it isn’t cultivated, it dies on the vine.
The only way out of the forest is through the trees. And the only way to get a book written is to write!
I’ve formed the habit of writing in the mornings, taking a break for lunch and a short walk, then coming back to my computer in the afternoons. I switch gears completely on the weekends by helping my husband with his renovation projects. It rejuvenates me and gets me ready for another week of writing.
