What is Denise's Motivation?
sit in my garden, drink coffee and read!
Reading about writing =
inspiration = I write
21 days makes a
habit – I once read somewhere that you had to do something for at least 21 days
in order for it to become a habit. I wrote “21 days makes it a habit” on a neon
pink sticky note and stuck it to the mirror attached to my bureau. I didn’t
write every day. But, years later the sticky note is still there as a reminder.
For me, getting to sit in my garden on a beautiful, summer morning, drink a cup
of blueberry coffee, and read about writing is the perfect way to establish a
habit. Some days I write and most days I do not but I am on my way to
establishing a routine. Once summer finishes and I head back to work I will have
to change my routine again, but by then the habit of reading about writing
every day or writing will be established. And I can work with that – that is a
practical goal. As Kristi Holl, blogger and author of Writer’s First Aid Getting Organized,
Getting Inspired, and Sticking to It, wrote in her book, “…to be able to write
consistently, this is a skill you absolutely must develop.”
goal will be to write every day.
