30 Nov / The Importance of a Daily Practice
After several fabulous exchanges with successful authors, I realized that one of the things that was missing for me as a writer was a solid daily practice. Since I’m currently deeply enmeshed in receiving my coaching training and certification, my writing has become all business–I’m only writing for the contracts I have, or when I receive assignments. My book projects have stalled, as my agent suddenly turning into a negative Nelly and uncertainty now surrounds how we’ll move forward.
On a recent meditative walk, my guidance came through loud and clear: JUST WRITE. And so, I’ve committed to writing—a half hour every day. My first day (yesterday) resulted in over 5 pages about love and my life. Who knew?!
I am certain that by leaving the “business” of writing behind and instead forging into the daily practice of writing, all of the answers will become clear.
