Like any craft, improving writing skill takes hard work and dedication, but can also be a fun and rewarding experience. For aspiring authors or professionals, creating a daily writing routine can help increase productivity. But getting into the habit of writing each day may seem overwhelming and a fast way to get burned out. However, consistent daily writing reduces the likelihood of writer’s block while maintaining the style and tone of your content. By following these steps you can quickly develop a natural and enjoyable writing habit. 

1- Make time for writing

You need to add writing to your regular schedule with a time and a place to do it. Having a dedicated area and daily writing time will ensure you have no distractions and prevent procrastination. Mornings are best for writing, but essentially you should try to write when you’re at your peak level of productivity. Stick to the same time each day since this writing habit may be a work commitment requiring business hours. When writing is your job, your time at the office is your daily cue to write. 

2- Set writing goals

Establish word or page goals for each day and keep track of your progress. With practice, if you can easily hit your writing goal consistently, consider increasing it gradually. But always start with an easily achievable goal in order to get an early sense of accomplishment. Use this writing momentum as motivation to maintain a writing streak that you refuse to break. By completing these goals, you will remove any self-doubt you may have when writing. 

3- Reward yourself

When you complete your writing goals for the day, treat yourself to a well-deserved break or some fresh air. The key is to always do something you enjoy after finishing your daily writing. Create an incentive, big or small, to look forward to each day once your writing is done. This reward will associate positive experiences to writing and make the entire process more enjoyable. 

4- Just start writing

Everything you write doesn’t have to be perfect or well thought out. Be mindful of your work while embracing the imperfections of your first draft. Move beyond the blank page and piece together your content because planning and outlining does count as writing. Platforms like WriteWay Writer provide an Integrated Idea Board that allows you to maintain your train of thought. As a result, you utilize more of your content and achieve your daily writing goals a lot sooner.
