Writing on the Road

Real writers write every day. If there’s one thing I would spend a genie wish on, it would be a compulsive and productive daily writing habit. That would be my one thing, my Eat a Frog every day, that would really develop my writing.

Lately I’ve been trying to write in the Tim Horton’s. It’s a Canadian donut institution with mediocre coffee and pastries.

I should be able to write here.

Just because I might be camping in an empty lot at a luxury housing development doesn’t mean I can’t pull out the laptop.

What’s my perfect writing situation? Sometimes it’s writing in the morning, at camp, no wifi. Sometimes it’s in a cafe, buzzing on caffeine. This is my never-ending challenge. How do I write regularly, in a variety of situations? How do I make writing my go-to when I’ve got an extra moment?

I read The Miracle Morning for Writers. I see the wisdom of having a morning routine, but my inner rebellious child hates that shit.

Full Confession: I am a self-help junkie. I read the books, listen to the podcasts. Not all of them – that would be impossible. I have a fondness for the self-improvement podcast gals from Down Under. The upbeat accents are totally motivating.

This blog post is in response to Natalie Sisson’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 1. Get ready to see more blog posts from me. I’m out to win some prizes. And have another go at daily writing.
