Writing Habits



Writing coaches say you need to write every day. What are your thoughts about this advice?

If you want to be a writer, you should invest the most productive part of your day writing. Which writing schedule works best for you?


Coaches urge you to write 2000-2500 words each day. How much do you write?

I do not know how many established writers compose a certain amount of words, neither understands how many aspiring writers follow this schedule.


A writer is smarter than the average. He is creative, builds up suspense as the story progresses through the rough curves and jerks of the plot. He is clever to hide the end until the last page is reached.


Writing is to create a story, a poem or an article. Does creation happen in a routine? Might have happened sometimes but not every day.


If you sell jam, you have to advise people to eat jam every day so your brand of jam finds its way in their kitchen. When you have a tie-up with a bakery, you advise “bread with jam.”


The writer is smarter than the average, he narrates the story from a different perspective and his conclusion surprises the readers. He is logical and aware of what to consume and what to reject.
