How To Write Every Day In Three Simple Steps (And Enjoy Every Minute Of It!)

You don't have to write every day to become a master of the craft, but it certainly helps, right?

Most writers know what a productive habit writing every day would be, but most don't know how to get started in doing it, or how they would keep it up long-term. Here are three simple steps you can use to not only write every day, but to enjoy every minute of it, too.

5 Ways To Re-Ignite Your Spirit (And Have Your Ideas Spread Like Wildfire) 

As my hand trembled over the keyboard, poised to send a simple yet important message out to the world, I knew that this would be a defining moment in my life.
On the count of three, I squeezed my eyes shut and pressed down on the "Enter" key. 

Suddenly there it was: my humble message - published, onscreen, and out there for the entire world to see...

[NEW!] The "Mina Schwartz" Effect (Or, How To Stop Comparison From Destroying Your Writing Career.)

Frankly, I’m quite sick of women like Mina Schwartz. 

She (or, insert other highly enlightened author/speaker/guru whose blog you follow here) represents something unintentionally daunting for the everyday writer: the idea that if you're not at her level of success, you're not a success.

She represents the plague of comparison that is sweeping across the nation due to the idea of “insta-success” that's being shoved down our throats at every turn. Here's what I propose you should do about it...

LESSON NINE: COURAGE AND MISTAKES

When I first wrote this lesson, I was under 24 hours away from launching "The Authorship Program®", which I knew would benefit writers all over the world. I had never done anything of such scale or importance before.

I invited people to a Google+ hangout, and I'd never even hosted a hangout before.

I invited hundreds of people to an event where, 15 minutes until the start, I still had no idea what I was going to say to them.

So, do you know what the lesson is, #wholewriter? It has to do with mistakes, and not being afraid to make them. We should never be ashamed of any mistakes we make in the journey towards becoming successful as authors. Don't stunt your growth for fear of mistakes. EMBRACE THEM. 

The only successful writers in this world are the ones who weren't afraid to make mistakes.

I think this is true of any creative undertaking, fear is a very limiting factor.

"Who Do You Think You Are?" Here Are Five Power Statements To Use When People Don't Believe In You 

When I first started out writing The Authorship Program®, I got a few of my friends together to help me brainstorm all the mean, horrible things that might be said about it so I could prepare myself.

Here are a few of the things they said:

"If you took some time to ____________ you'd look more credible in the industry."_
"If you waited a few years to gain more experience, you could teach it better."
"If you wrote a few more books first, you'd be better at writing this one."

Has this ever happened to you?

You share your dreams with your friends and they respond with objections that make you question your entire life. 

Now you're doubting your abilities, qualifications and potential - and you weren't even thinking about these issues before, but you certainly are now.

While there's nothing inherently wrong with objections, they are a way for others to suggest that we're not good enough right now, as we are. It suggests that the knowledge and experience we've gained throughout our lives so far is worth nothing, or isn't worth enough, and there has to be more, more, more.

I want to teach you how to overcome these objections with five simple but powerful affirmations.

+Roberta Kennedy Absolutely, but it doesn't have to be that way. I hope those that criticise because they have low self-esteem, or because they are jealous, realise that they have a choice to use their experience to make themselves better.

Thanks +Carrie Brummer for featuring me on your wonderful website, Artist Think!
 
Author +Stephanie Lennox  speaks to the inherent nature of being a creative. We can fight it all we want, our desire to be creative, but it will never leave us. It took me years of battling, but ultimately I knew all along I was an artist and a writer. It wasn’t until I fully embraced that part of me that I could really grow. Did you always know you were a creative? When did you realize it? Or, more importantly, when did you embrace it?

FALLING

Sometimes, doing what you love feels a lot like falling. 

If you really, really want to live your dream, you HAVE to throw yourself into it, eyes closed and arms open, and (as Amanda Palmer once said) you just have to trust that the people out there will be there to catch you. 

But what happens when you launch yourself out into the open, and you're afraid? If you hesitated, or held something back? If you clung to the edge of your comfort zone so when you fell, it scraped your fingers?

I'll tell you what happens. The weight of your fears are heavy enough to crush you. 

The people that would have been there to catch you will be FORCED to move out of the way, because you and all your fears were just too heavy.

That has been my personal "aha" today. What does holding back or playing small achieve, apart from confirming the belief that you will fail? 

How ridiculous is it to believe that if you give your absolute all, no one in the entire world will be there for you?

I'm living by this idea now, so expect a lot of new stuff from me in the coming weeks. :)

LESSON TEN: HELP & GRATITUDE

As a #wholewriter , you're going to need a lot of help.
Never, ever be afraid to ask for it. 

Call the people you want into your life by being your authentic self, by making it clear what you need from The Universe, by making it as easy as possible for people to connect with you, and by sharing your mission. It will find the people who are meant to share the journey with you and become part of your cause.

Why people help you is not your business. The only thing you need to worry about is how you can create the conditions so that if they want to, they CAN.

People are prosocial at heart.
Remember that.

LESSON EIGHT: BLAZE YOUR OWN TRAIL.

So what if others don't understand your passion for writing, #wholewriter ?  

So what if they don't "approve"? 

So what if they think you should get a "real job", or do something "more productive" with your time?

Trying to impress people is a huge waste of time, that never ends. And for what? At the very best, you'll receive a "well done" or a pat on the back. Don't sacrifice your happiness for that.

There's no worse feeling in the world than regret, and letting yourself down. People might have good intentions for you, but they can go right back to their own lives if the advice they give you doesn't work out. There's no risk for them, and everything at risk for you.

You're not a servant, put on this earth to please others. You're not a minor character in someone else's book...

LESSON SEVEN: EMPOWERMENT

What's the first few words that come to mind when you think about your favourite singer? favourite author? favourite actress?

Hold them in your mind for a second. 

I would bet that none of the words you thought were negative. (+1 this post if I was right!)

You like the people I just mentioned, so your brain made an intentional, conscious decision to omit anything negative about them. This isn't to say that they don't have any negative qualities, but their negative qualities just don't matter to you.

So wouldn't it be great if you could do this for yourself? Instead of putting yourself down all the time, #wholewriter, empower yourself instead.
