Yep, I’ve got them. I think we all do. To be a professional writer you really need to be in the habit of writing something every day. It doesn’t have to be 1667 words like NaNoWriMo but it does have to be something each and every day. So here’s my excuse for why I don’t do it every day. Every job I’ve had since 2007 has required writing many emails in a day. My new job requires the most writing compared to my past jobs. So by the time I get home at the end of the day, the last thing I want to do is blog or write. I feel like I’ve used up my allotment of words for the day before I get home. Which is why I am blogging this in the morning before going of to my job.
If I really want to change my habits then I will need to get up earlier in the morning so I have time to write before getting to work. Then, when I’m tired at the end of the day I can truly relax and read or watch a show and unwind.
Now, do I have enough motivation and determination to carry the theory into action?
