Welcome to the Imposter’s Guide to Writing Habits.

I imagine that you’ve picked up this book so that you can learn a little bit more about scheduling, goal setting and most importantly, consistency. Congratulations, if you were looking for any of those, I have good news. This little guide goes into a lot of detail about all of what a writing habit actually is and how to set yourself up for successful returns to the page.

What is a writing habit?

To understand what a writing habit actually is, we should probably have a look at the official definition of a habit. You know, just to be sure that we’re building the correct type of behaviour. 

Merriam-Webster states that a habit is: a settled tendency or usual manner of behaviour. So to build up a habit, we need to make the behaviour of writing a regular occurrence in our lives. This can take time, especially if you’re dealing with an irregular schedule or a tricky part of your story. Procrastination and avoidance tendencies can get in the way of building a habit, but these issues can be strategised against and dealt with pretty quickly.

It’s important to note that a habit doesn’t have to occur daily, weekly or even monthly. The more you can make time for writing, the quicker writing your story will go, but that’s about the only benefit. If you can only make a small amount of space for writing, that is perfectly okay. Everything about the writing, learning and publishing process will go more quickly the more time you can dedicate to your craft, but don’t let scheduling limitations prevent you from reaching your writing goal entirely. Take the time and make the steps as and when you can find the time to do them. A habit doesn’t have a timeline. It’s simply a tendency.
