Habits

Which habits support your writing?

One of mine:

Writing in the morning, whether or not I feel like it, at least 500 words. If, like me, you have other employment, you don’t have the luxury of spending hours upon hours developing your prose or poetry. It doesn’t take long to write 500 words. Most mornings, I go beyond my self-imposed goal, and that is inspiring in and of itself. 

Sometimes the piece is a brilliant spark. Sometimes it’s dreck. It doesn’t have to be brilliant. It just has to be done.
