“Something ended last night, clearly. But I have a feeling it was the start of something, too.” — Britney King, Dead In The Water
If you’re not a writer… or you are not interested in habits and why we do the things we do then you’ll probably want to stop reading here. You won’t find the rest very interesting. 🙂
Someone asked me the other day whether or not I’m doing NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year because I haven’t mentioned it. And the short answer is yes.
But I do the equivalent of NaNoWriMo every month.
My first Nano in 2012 taught me a lot—probably the most important thing being the significance of creating a writing habit. When the question of whether or not you are going to do a thing disappears—because you know you are going to do it— life gets a lot easier. Or not. 😉
Speaking of which, one of the best (non-fic) books I’ve ever read is The Power of Habit. I love that book (it delivered stuff I didn’t even know I needed) and I refer to it often.
Anyway, to keep it short… I find as with most things that are good for you it works best if you do them every day. 🙂
