As I mentioned in my Writing Goals post, I want to make writing more of a daily habit.
This means, among other things, that I need to write… daily.
Wow, I’m the master of the obvious, no?
Anyway, conventional wisdom says that it takes 21 days to make something a habit. Although my goal was to dedicate 3 nights per week to writing, I’m happy to report that, so far in 2012, I have written (at least a little) every day! And at least three nights per week have been even more dedicated to writing (i.e. – a minimum of one hour in front of the keyboard).
I’d say that I’m well on the way to making writing a firm habit. Most days, I’ve even been excited to sit down in front of the computer, to see where my muse will take me (a feeling I can’t remember having in the last year or so!). Even though she abandoned me, I still feel her influence.
I’m super excited about (most of) the stories I’m working on right now, and hope to use them to enter some contests. Time will tell, I suppose!
