The value of writing daily

While it may not apply to everyone, writing every day is something many writers aspire to.

Here are just some of the benefits of writing daily:

It hones your skill

It keeps your passion alive

It keeps the interest of your readers

It helps promote your products

It helps you connect with more people

It helps you discover new directions in your writing

Two simple methods for writing daily

Just write

Write about the first thing you thought about. Write about what you’re feeling at the moment. Write about your difficulties in writing. Just write.

If you still find it hard, imagine you’re talking to a friend or to a housemate. When you’re with true friends, you don’t edit yourself, you don’t try to find the perfect word or to check your grammar. You just start to express yourself. You talk because you want to connect with someone.

“The scariest moment is always just before you start.”
― Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Find inspiration

Listen to classical music to set the mood, or listen to a love song to help you remember memories that could ignite your motivation to write.

You can also go for a short walk and just listen to the silence around you. Let nature inspire you and move you within.

If you need something more physical to wake up your senses, you can exercise first. Try to find something to activate your mood.

Some people, on the other hand, find inspiration just when they’re most relaxed. Maybe you can take a hot bath as you try to enter a sense of calm and serenity.

Don’t give up

Just write or find some inspiration to motivate you. Watch a movie or read a book. If you find something that interests you, write as though you’re merely writing for yourself. Start a journal if you wish. Soon you will find that writing itself will give you inspiration. Write to inspire and to be inspired. Be inspired so that you could write and write some more. There is no better way but to persist each day. Never give up!

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”― Ernest Hemingway
