“A bad habit never disappears miraculously; it’s an undo-it-yourself project.” ~Abigail Van Buren
Writing is a habit. And guess what? You are in control of the habit. If you want to make writing every day a habit then you have to actually get up a few minutes earlier, take a few minutes out of your lunch, or stay up a little bit later to fit it into your already hectic schedule.
You can make excuses about being busy, too tired, the cat peed on your computer; but you have to realize that your excuses are YOUR CHOICE not to write. Seriously, you are in control of the things in your world. Unless mother nature decides to suck up all the paper, pens and computers in the world there reallly is absolutely no excuse for you not to write.
If you don’t write then own up to your choice. Don’t make excuses or pretty it up to make yourself feel better. Be honest with yourself when a day passes and you haven’t written one word. It had nothing to do with the loud neighbours, poor internet service, crying baby or whatever else comes up in our 24 hour day. Only you can break your bad habits.
It takes twenty-one days to make a habit and only seconds to break one. So what are you going to do? Are you going to write? Or not?
