Healthy Writing Habits

it's never too early for writers to start healthy writing habits, or too late.

Healthy writing habits means steady-work and an abundance of writing ideas. Writing ideas and steady-work equals money, presence and/ or stability.

Is there such a thing as healthy writing habits? A few asked.

The answer: Yes.

Healthy writing habits begins with writing everyday. Curve-out a space for you to write in. It could be in the attic, basement, barn, or closet. Fill your space with your writing tools.

What is a writing tool?

A writing tool is a book, app or any item that provides inspiration for writing.

Disconnect from everything but writing. Your writing space is just for writing, creating.

Select a specific time to write each day. Stay there for, at least, two hours. Try to write more than two hours. Take anything you'll need before sitting down to write. Could you want fruit, for example? Don't give yourself an excuse to not write.

Of course, turn-off your cell phone, and other writing stealing appliances.

Healthy writing habits are keys to success.

About Me

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
