We are creatures of habit.
When changes are necessary, we can live with them for a while, but then we drift back to "normal". Our normal. I can go on a health kick, ease up on the carbs, lose some weight. But then, you know, whatever, and before I know it, I'm back where I was.
I meet all kinds of writers in my workshops. The advice I consistently give them is to get into a regular writing habit, and that more than anything else, the way to write a novel is plant your rump in a chair and write. No short cuts.
But for some, that's a habit that never really develops. We go back to "normal"... thinking about writing instead of actually writing.
It takes at least 30 days - some say 6 weeks - to form a new habit or break an old one. Take the 30 day challenge of writing for at least 10 minutes every day. Be consistent. Show up. Do it even if you don't feel like it.
Let me know how much you've written.
