Writing advice is abundant. There will always be bloggers, writers, YouTubers, podcasters, etc. who will try to bombard you with writing advice. (This includes me!) However, as with all pieces of advice, there are definitely tips you should take with a grain of salt.

Tip One: Write every day: When I first started on my writing journey, I took this advice as law. I started a writing chain and committed myself to write for at least fifteen minutes a day, every day. For a while, things were good. I was able to batch blog posts, consistently work on my WIP (work-in-progress), and draft content for my newsletter.

However, after a couple of months, writing every day seemed to turn into a chore. I wrote just to write and the work I was putting out wasn’t my best. I felt like I was forcing creativity and my work was suffering as a result. To combat this, I took a step back, and only wrote when I was inspired, or on average three times a week, and my writing improved considerably. Therefore, if you can write daily, and consistently produce quality work, then, by all means, write every day. If you can’t, then don’t. The point is to write. How often or how little is up to you.
