If there was one thing you could do to improve your writing and it would only take a few minutes - would you do it?

Would you do it as often as you could to improve faster? To write better?

To tell stories you once only dreamed about?

To transform your writing from good to great?

You're in luck!

There is exactly one habit you can do that is a game-changer for writers and aspiring authors alike. 

Write Daily

There are no shortcuts when it comes to writing. 

It's not one of those things where you can be the best at it by throwing a bunch of money into it and buying the best tech out there to get the job done. 

Getting better at writing takes time, effort, and dedication to writing mostly found in the practice of constant writing.

You don't have to sit down and type away for hours on end each day penning the next great American novel, but you do have to write something whether this is a few sentences, a paragraph, a page, or much more. The amount is up to you, the important bit is the creating of the habit of daily writing.

Like any skill in life you want to improve, writing improves with practice.

Writing every day, even if it's only a little bit each day helps you create a consistent routine that strengthens your writing skills and helps you hone your craft better and sometimes faster than the writers who choose to write every once in a while or every few weeks or so.

As much as I wish there were some magic formula or a simple quick fix that could be done to make anyone a better writer it's one of those things that has to be done in steps and stages, each one improving and working on different parts separately before coming together as a whole. 

If you struggle to write dialogue you need to research what makes good dialogue work and then practice it often. Writing scenes of dialogue almost daily until it becomes like second nature to you. 

The more you write and the more often you write the faster you will improve and build not just your writing ability, but your confidence in yourself as a writer. 

Writing daily is a powerful catalyst for growth as a writer helping your creativity and your self-improvement as a writer. 

Try to commit to the practice of daily writing even if it's just a little bit at a time and you'll make monumental changes in your writing ability. 

Best of luck! 

Get to writing! 

With love,

    How true, how true, how true when you say this. Even here on Vocal if you do not write everyday your percentage goes down even a little and at times it is hard to get back in the green.
