The Writing Habit

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

What is the writing habit?

The habit of writing every single day. 

It doesn’t matter what you write about, it doesn’t matter how much you write, it doesn’t matter how well you write; it matters only that you do.

What if life gets in the way?

Design the habit (and any habit) with the worst days in mind. Make the floor too small to fail. By floor, I mean the minimum daily target for the habit to be considered complete.

What is the measure of success?

When you can no longer conceive of a day without writing. When writing becomes identity.
