Hello Creative Writer,
One of the hardest things about learning any skill is practicing. It’s frustrating not being just naturally brilliant. And even if you do happen to possess supernatural writing talent at some point you will still have to take up the painstaking and nerve-wreaking task of sitting down and doing the work.
The best way to get good at anything is to do it. Alot. Over and over and over. On some type of regular schedule. And unfortunately, writing is no different. The more you write and read the better and easier it gets until you don’t have to pull out the thesaurus every few minutes or use the word talent instead of prowess because the spelling and meaning temporarily escaped you. Words will start to come more easily, ideas will flourish and you might, to your own amazement, finish your novel!
So, are you making time for writing today? Is it penciled into your planner? Do you know what you need to force yourself to sit and work- coffee, food, a typewriter, a special pen, pet or group. Let’s make a writing habit!
