Prolific Writers Don’t Wait for Inspiration to Hit. They Will it Into Being.

  • Writing is a process. Writing at specific times in the day and writing for a specific amount of time are ways to make that happen. Figure out what time works for you. Some people love mornings. I am a night writer.
  • Writing comes with failure, but we must choose not to feel bad about it. Writing often has more to do with how much one writes than what one writes (in terms of quality).
  • When in doubt, just write. Journal. Write about your day. Write about how frustrating writing is. Write about how helpful writing is. There is always something to write about. You can even write about how there is nothing to write about. Chances are, most people have felt that way and it would be the most relatable thing you can write.
  • Understand that inspiration may or may not happen. I’ve published over 50 articles since the new year and inspiration hit me about 10% of the time. The biggest thing that kept me publishing was sitting down to write.
