What habits do you have?
I’m a chocaholic, so I’ve got a chocolate habit. I’ve also got a book habit. Plant me anywhere, and I’ll look for the nearest book shop.
Of course, my biggest habit is my Writing Habit.
Want to develop a Writing Habit? Here’s how:
Three times today, do a timed writing of five minutes. Just write wherever you happen to be. Start by describing three things you can see, and go on from there.
Do the five-minute, three-times-a-day timed writings for two weeks. This will help you to integrate writing into your day so that writing is just something you do; it'll go a long way to developing your Writing Habit.
During those two weeks, watch your own reactions. Your intuition is your creativity, and your intuition helps you in all your writing. Become aware of glimmers of ideas and feelings. What excites you? What time of the day do you most feel like writing?
At the end of three weeks, you will have developed a Writing Habit.
