Write every day

Want to become a good writer? Want to battle writer’s block? Want a serious challenge?

Then write every day.

I’m not talking about twittering or posting comments on blogs, I’m talking about original pieces. If you want to be an online journalist (aka “blogger”), then you should blog every day. If you want to write fiction, then write some fiction every day.

It doesn’t have to be much. A lot of it might not be good. The whole idea is to get used to writing, to do it in regular intervals, and to make it less of an obstacle when you really need to perform.

So write every day if you want to be a writer.
