Late last night, you promised yourself you’d write today. Then, you woke half an hour late for work. You got stuck in traffic and spent the day dealing with an angry customer/client/boss.
Later that evening at home, your kids needed help with their homework, and there were chores to do around the house.
When things were finally quiet, you didn’t have the desire or the energy to sit down and do your most important work. Or maybe you forgot about your promise altogether.
To write every day is a simple ambition, and it’s one many new writers struggle to achieve.
If you’re having trouble, please don’t give up.
I don’t doubt your commitment or your talent; the only reason you don’t write every day is because you haven’t cultivated a daily writing practice.
