Create Your Writing System

Being a writer is about having a system, not goals.

I used to think being a productive writer was all about goals. If I write 500 words every day, I will have written 100,000 words in 200 days. Mission accomplished.

However, goals aren’t everything. Sometimes it’s about creating a system instead.
