If you think you can’t write all the time, you’re wrong. Perhaps you have a different set of priorities. That’s all there is to it.
I know many people talk about habits, make this change to grow your habit, once you form a habit it’s hard to break, and more clichés than you can shake a stick at.
While I am sure they are correct about lifestyle choices- is writing really a habit? Personally, I don’t think a writing routine can ever be a habit. Writing is an art form. It’s a release valve, an escape, or your livelihood even.
Creating anything from nothing has its own power.
Everything else in life is mundane and bland.
But if you can imagine, people, places, and worlds, and make that visible to the world. That is magic! Once you learn how to do that with confidence, whether it’s good or not is in the eye of the beholder, it’s impossible to stop.
Writing isn’t a habit, it’s an addiction.
The choice is yours. Yes, it’s easier to plop in front of the TV and zone out for four hours, and that is what many of us like to do. However, once you start bringing stories life, you will feel a draw from that television to your computer. Your brain will be screaming at you: “I can write better than this show’s writers.” OR “OMG this show is amazing, I want to write something this good.” And that’s when you’ll find yourself heading off to write – just a few mins- you’ll tell yourself. Four hours later and you’re saying – where the hell did the time go?
Tell your tale. Happy writing folks.
