Do I have to write every day? What if miss a day? Can I make it up?

Building healthy, sustainable routines is always more important than your specific productivity. Writing is a long-term mission, and healthy routines will get more out of your weeks, months, years, and lifetime than what you accomplish today.

Today, let’s talk about some strategies to get the work done and keep your head in the right space.

ASSIGNMENT: Write for one hour.

If you’re still working up to writing for one hour, that’s OK. Make sure you’re consistently challenging yourself to increase your writing time, so that you’ll get to one-hour writing blocks soon.

Write for the time period you’ve assigned for yourself, and then use the remainder of your hour to continue to build out your Novel Matrix plan. If time remains, read something that you love.
