Is it better to write at a set time or just when inspiration strikes?
There’s no one right answer.
When I first began writing, I make myself write every day starting at a set time and continuing until I ran out of steam. I did not enjoy it.
Time passed and I found that I didn’t need to force myself to do something that was a part of me any more than I had to force myself to do anything else I enjoyed. Baking cookies. Taking the dog for a walk. Sitting on the deck and watching the deer. Whatever.
Everyone is different so everyone should approach writing from their own unique perspective and figure out what will work best for them. In other words, everyone should look at their life as a whole and see how they work best in other areas of their life because that’ll be their best and most productive way of writing.
So what do you think? How do you get things done?
