The discipline of writing every day teaches many lessons. Some days you fill the writing session with wonder.  You look forward to the writing time, words flow onto the page and the process seems effortless. Other days you don’t want to write, but as you sit typing, the words flow, and you write more than you would have imagined. There are days when despite your best efforts the words are crap.

Discipline makes you strong and you battle through, working and writing until you reach your daily goal. The chances are when you edit those hard-won words you find gems you didn’t recognize when you wrote. Truth is, even the words you wrote on a good day may be crap. Regardless, they are words on the page. Words you can edit. Words you can polish and shine to reflect your best story.

How is your writing discipline developing?

  1. Great post! I’m so indebted to you for tempting me into committing to writing everyday! I love when it’s eleven p.m. I know I just have to write one sentence!! And so many times I end up with something I like!!

    • I am so happy for you. Sometimes the hardest thing is to start. It is surprising how many times writing just one sentence morphs and becomes so much more. And ending up with something you like is real win-win. Congratulations, Chuck.
