Good morning Christian writers! Aristotle said:

“We are what we repeatedly do. Greatness then, is not an act, but a habit.”

He has a point. If we want to be successful in our writing, we need to make it a habit. Dabbling just isn’t going to make us great writers! Success isn’t a sudden event. It’s the culmination of weeks, months, years, of doing the right thing. One step at a time.

Have you made writing a habit in your life? Part of something you do on a regular basis? Experts tell us that it can take anything from 3 weeks to 2 months to establish a habit, so the sooner we start, the better! 🙂 Just think, if you begin today, by the end of the summer, writing will have become an ingrained part of your life!

What’s the best time for you to write? Morning, noon or night? Where’s the best place to write? How often do you want to aim to write (realistically!)?

Answer these three questions, come up with a plan . . . then make it a habit . . .

Let me know what you’ve decided, in the comments below, or over on our facebook page!
