How Are Those Writing Habits of Yours?

I don't know about you, but some of my writing habits are rather abysmal—and that's coming from someone who writes every single day for her job.

I started feeling even worse when I read this
article from one of my favorite authors, Megan Crane.

But then as I started reading a little further down, I actually started feeling encouraged. As writers, there is no one specific way to make it work. In fact, it may look a little different for all of us—some will type diligently from 9-5, while others will get something down when inspiration strikes. Either way, it's all about making progress and not slumping into bad habits, particularly like not moving forward at all.

What resonates most with you from Megan's article? Do you need to indulge the muse a little? Read more? Channel your inner disciplinarian and set a few specific goals? For me, I'm thinking a combination of all three should do the trick. :)


  1. Thanks for pointing out this article. I have slowly realized I complain about not having time to write on my story then I think but I write my blog... I mean it is writing. But I want to write my story more. But I can say I write more when inspiration strikes so I always carry a notebook with me. Have a good day and good luck writing.

  2. Thanks so much, Blaire. :) And you're right, blogging IS writing. Just in a shorter form, so go for it!
