The Divine Guide To Creating A Daily Writing Practice, (Kindle Version), by Pernille Norregaard, begins by explaining that every day you have to prioritize. Often, one must give up things that they love.

Simplify certain parts of your life...for example, organize your household chores and carry a notebook with you wherever you go, etc.

Now, you have to actually write and not be a perfectionist, procrastinator or multitask. You have to be a monotasker.

Choose what you want to work on.
How many minutes to write.
Clear your desk of all other work.
Have everything in need for writing within reach.
Close your e-mail, turn off cellular phones, close the door with a do not disturb sign.
Set a timer.
Take breaks.

The author goes on to state that you have to learn to love deadlines...not a punishment, but a gift. Make a work schedule with deadlines and bits of text to be done each day. Have an editorial schedule with future articles scheduled to be ahead of the game. Place this somewhere to be reminded.

Again, the author states to literally close the door.

Then, set yourself a daily accomplishment...just write! The author states that it is your sacred duty to contribute and share your talent with the world. So, just write!

When do you enjoy your writing the most? Are you a morning person? Are you a night person? Middle of the day?

Yes, according to the author, you may take a day off every week. But, make it the same day.

Celebrate and get yourself something when you have accomplished something, such as a series of articles. You deserve it!

One strategy for your writing practice is to find a writing community or buddy to keep you accountable. Another is not to let fear dictate what is important to you. Following, do not wait for inspiration...just write!

Finally, decide to do this and make a committment.
