You must have heard that to be an accomplished writer, you must write daily, no matter how little.
Why?
That is why you are called a Writer.
Medical Doctors, Teachers, Traders, Broadcasters, Stockbrokers, you name the profession; they all do their work daily except maybe when they are on vacation or some sort of emergency occurs.
Even if writing is a part time job for you, you must still try to write daily.
In Ecclesiastes 9:10, the bible teaches us to be committed and diligent.
ďWhatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.Ē (NIV)

What happens when you do something every day?
You learn new ways of how not to do it.
You discover the best ways to do it well.
You improve on it and eventually become an expert.
You are known by it.
It becomes a habit.
And this last point is what I want to talk more about - The Writing Habit.
A habit evolves from an action or pattern of behavior that is repeated so often it becomes typical of you though you may be unaware of it.
Whatever has become your habit forms your character. Your character is who you are. When writing becomes a habit, all you want to do is write. Like a man hooked on drugs; you just must have that fix and do all the crazy things writers do.
Here are a few crazy things I do.
ēI sit at my desk writing for hours, too hooked to cook, eat, or do any other thing.
ēI am so hooked that even when Iím pressed to visit the loo, I continue to hold it till itís almost out.
ēIím sitting there somewhere, anywhere and staring at anything or nothing, but what Iím actually doing is hearing my characters talk to themselves in my head.
ēSometimes, I nod my head when you talk to me but Iím probably writing a script in my mind. If by any chance Iím listening, Itís because I think there is a good story or article idea in what you are saying.
ēI sleep late and wake early because I have to write. Itís like a need to purge myself of some thoughts and until I put them all down, I canít let out that sigh of accomplishment.
ēThere are seasons when Iím almost a recluse because Iím writing. I lay on my bed, sleepless some nights, thinking of how to write what I need to write.
Believe me, I do so many other crazy things you donít want to hear about.

When you do a thing regularly, it becomes so much a part of you that you automatically do it. Some psychologists describe habits as learned or conditioned behavior over which one has little voluntary control. That is why it is important to cultivate only good and productive habits. Destructive ones when set in motion may be uncontrolled until it totally ruins the person.
Thankfully, writing is a positive and fruitful habit. I always say Writing is Sacred. Yes, it is. It is a habit everyone should develop and much more if you want to be rightly called a Writer.
Whatís more? There is always a reward for commitment and diligence.
ďDo you see a man diligent and skillful in his business? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men.Ē Proverbs 22:29 (AMP)
Isnít this our aspiration?


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
