@writingslowly The advice I give most often to people who have issues forming a daily writing habit is to set a ridiculously low goal. For example, my daily goal at the moment is a measly 210 words, but I will exceed that by leaps and bounds because once I write that small amount, the gears are greased. And if they turn out to be too rusty that day, at least I still reached my goal and can feel good about it. ✏️

@SamHawken makes so much sense.

@SamHawken Thank you, this is good advice - it's quite hard to write a really small amount, since the words start flowing once you begin. The hardest part is starting at all. After that it's much easier. Another piece of advice I've heard is to attempt to write the worst paragraph in history. That also turns out to be quite hard to do. It's much easier to write something that's at least ok! ✏
