Where and how doesn’t matter

It doesn’t matter where and how you write. What matters is you do.

I’ve always had a love affair with writing. I’ll admit, somewhere along the way we did have a falling apart and it is only now where I am beginning to get to know it once again.

Personally, it’s a daily struggle to create a habit for writing. That’s what I say to myself when I skip a day.

I then remind myself that you can write anywhere. On paper, receipt or even on a piece of tissue paper. Alternatively, you can type away using a multitude of softwares or apps on either your phone or computers. It doesn’t matter how. It matters is that you do.

It is important to create a habit for yourself. Regardless of whether it is writing or something else, a good habit makes all the difference. Unfortunately, I don’t have a good habit yet. I always try to jot down some notes on my notebook or type away on my e-mail drafts or on WordPress but there are just some days when inspiration doesn’t come or when writing becomes a challenge. During those days, I resort to reading. The more you read, the more inspiration you get. Procrastination is not always your enemy.

We all work differently. Some people need a specific workplace for all of their creative juices to flow. What works for me is blanking out. I always find it best when I tune everything else out. As I type away now, my nephew is watching television with the volume turned up. It is annoying but a good practice for myself is to just focus on what I’m working on and try not to get distracted.

If you ever feel like you don’t know where to begin, remember to just start.

The hardest part is always the first step.
