Do you wish you wrote more regularly? Perhaps you do write regularly, most of the time, but have fallen a little out of that groove. Probably you have many other things to do, and by the time they’re all taken care of, you have little energy left to hunch over a page or screen.
I’ve been feeling a bit like that lately. And I’m all for taking breaks, but after a while a break can start to feel like a drought.
So I decided to design a few exercises for myself, and make them quick enough that I could do them in the morning, no matter how busy I was. That way, even I didn’t have time to do any other writing, I would still be keeping my brain in shape. I also hoped that the simple routine of sitting and writing would lead to longer, more productive sessions.
I’d like to share a week’s worth of those exercises, one a day, starting on Monday. I hope you find them useful. If you do try them out, feel free to post the results in the comment section or in an email to me.
