One of the most instrumental changes in my life has been writing every single day.
For many years I was a writer who didn’t write that regularly. It was always on the back of my mind to write, but I didn’t find the time.

It was life-changing.
I recommend daily writing for anyone, not just writers. Here’s what I’ve found from my daily habit:
And that’s just the start. The full benefits of this regular habit are, ironically, not something you can put into words, but something that must be experienced to be known.
How to Write Daily
There are various ways to get into the daily writing habit, but here’s what I’d recommend based on my experience:
That’s all you need to get started. Over time, you’ll learn the power of interaction with your audience, and draw inspiration and lessons from the audience. But for now, just get started.
The Sea Change Program: Daily Writing
If you’d like help forming this great habit, I’d like to offer my Sea Change Program, which I’ve created to help people form habits and change their lives.
In May, we’ll be focusing on the Daily Writing Habit, and I invite you to join us. More info on the program here.
In addition, I’ve just added the Beginner’s Habit Program to Sea Change, for those who would like to learn the basic skills of habit formation. I highly recommend it if you’ve had trouble forming habits.
