Writers Write. Right?

Pretty much anyone who's "made it" in the literary industry will tell those aspiring up-and-comers that if you want to get serious about writing that you need to do it everyday. You can't only write when you feel like it, or when you feel inspired, or when you decide you have the time to sit down and do it. It has to be all the time.

I wouldn't really consider myself a writer (though one day maybe) but I will say that writing / blogging daily is soooo not easy. When I first started a blog a few years ago, I knew that I wanted it to be an everyday thing. I felt like I had so much to say, and I did and do -- but often am not really sure of where to begin things. I also often have a tendency to ramble on about things completely different from the main point I'm trying to make (for real... happens all the time). And yet despite the difficulties of writing daily, I still do my best to do it. As it is I've already had to take two hiatuses due to schoolwork, but that's life and it happens and I know i'll make it back up somehow.

Writing, in my opinion should be something you love. And naturally, if you force yourself to do it all the time, there is a possibility that you won't be able to spend time on the other things that you want to do. It may even lose the magical appeal that was present that lured you in to that profession in the beginning.

And so while I will continue to attempt to write daily, maybe you all have some comments about how you write. The floor is open!


  1. When I very first started blogging last year I tried writing daily but then quickly realized that it's hard to do it's stressful and takes some of the joy out of it. Just my humble opinion. So I decided to write about twice per week. I feel it makes my posts have a little more impact if they are more spread out...let's them marinate so-to-speak.

    1. Yes, every individual has to do what works for them... It does take a lot of time to write every day. I guess one thing I was getting at though, is that for people looking to make writing a career, they do need to practice a lot.

  2. i think so. as much as i'd love to sit down and write and make a living out of it, sometimes it's not easy to always feel inspired.


Would love to hear what you are thinking. Leave a comment!
