How to create a consistent habit with writing?

If you're thinking of writing consistently to hone your writing skills, to be more creative, or to start a career in writing one day, know that you're not alone.

Before I wrote my first post, I didn't know what to write about. 

Will anybody read what I wrote? Do I sound stupid? Does my writing make sense? were questions I asked myself constantly. 

I read many tips on writing. 

Find a niche. Write about the latest topic. Write on something that was interesting in your day, like the Homework for Life that was coined by Matthew Dicks

I tried a couple of things like numbering my posts, writing key takeaways from podcasts and videos or just forcing out a blog post by sitting in front of a black page. 

In the end, I found what works for me is writing everyday. No niche, no numbering, no chosen topic. Just sitting down at the same time every evening and writing a blog post.

But if you look around my blog, you'll notice that I don't write every single day. I found that to be incredibly stressful. 

There are days where I had a long day at work and my brain capacity is zero when I sit down to write. 

Sometimes, I write. But I don't publish. 

Other days, I choose not to write. 

But I never give myself two days in a row without writing.

I think skipping two days in a row makes your brain lazy and stops its production of creative ideas. 

So if you're thinking of writing, why not start today?
