I don’t have the energy to write today. I’m just not feeling inspired. I’ll do it tomorrow when I’m feeling a little more into it.
Sound familiar? You’ve probably found yourself thinking like this more times than you can count. The next day comes, and you’re not feeling motivated that day. Weeks pass, and the writing just doesn’t happen. Tomorrow never comes, and you end up wondering how other people manage to write every day while you struggle to get in the occasional burst.
The problem isn’t really motivation or inspiration though. The real barrier to learning how to write daily is procrastination, and the solution is to build a writing habit. Writing shouldn’t feel like an accomplishment, it should feel routine.
Once you’ve developed a writing habit, it’ll actually feel weird not to write, like forgetting to brush your teeth.
