15 Habits of Great Writers: Initiate
When I think of this concept of "taking the first step daily", I think of my marathon training.
Can I run 26.2 miles today? No. But I followed my training schedule and ran for 30 minutes at an easy pace. Tomorrow I will run the scheduled 40-50 minutes. And I know that if I follow my training schedule daily, on November 4th I will run 26.2 miles. However, focusing on doing a little bit each day helps me not get discouraged and overwhelmed.
As for my writing today, I commit to blogging about "15 Habits of Great Writers" and to spend at least one hour this afternoon working on one of my manuscripts.
Today I encourage everyone to take that first step. Don't get overwhelmed. Do what you can with what you have today. And then tomorrow, do the same. Promise yourself to do what you can each day in regards to your writing.
