Here’s an interesting question from an ezine subscriber: “How do you make yourself write?”
Speaking for myself, I don’t need to make myself write. Writing is a habit for me. No force involved at all. Stopping myself and taking time away from writing is a challenge, however. I’m happiest when I’m writing, and this is true for most professional writers.
Make writing a habit
Professional writers spend their entire day writing, or doing something related to writing, like research, or marketing their writing services. As they do it, writing just becomes a habit.
If you’re not yet a professional, then the easiest way to “force” yourself to write is to behave like a pro – that is, to write every day.
Set goals with deadlines. Initially, your deadlines will be self-imposed, but as you get writing jobs, your deadlines will be set by others.
When you know you have a certain number of projects you MUST work on every day to achieve your goals then there’s no force; you write every chance you get.
Write more – become a pro writer
Yes, you can write more and become an expert writer – even if you’re a world-class procrastinator.
Did you know that when you write more, your writing improves? Many of my writing students experience this. They find that when they write more, writing is easier for them – they’re not dominated by their inner editor.
My new writing class, “Write More And Make More Money From Your Writing: Develop A Fast, Fun Productive Writing Process” is based on lessons I developed for my private coaching students to help them to write more, improve their writing, and make more money writing.
If you’re struggling with your writing, the class will help. The techniques you’ll learn in class with help you write fiction, nonfiction, and copy for business.
Discover how you can write more, improve your writing, and sell more of your writing to higher-paying markets.
