The Wisest Writing Tip I Ever Got

Some say you should write a minimum of two thousand words daily. Some recommend the best time to write is early in the morning because it’s when inspiration flows in abundance. Others suggest you should write as much as you can in quick, short sprints. While others advise, you should flat out write whatever comes naturally. Write in a quiet room, write every day, write often… The writing tips are endless. Some may work for you; many won’t.

The best tip I ever got, and the one that worked for me, came from my husband. He told me to enjoy myself, and that’s precisely what I did. Having left behind a demanding, stressful job that sapped my energy and drained my creativity in the past three decades, I embraced his suggestion.

I write when I want, where I want, how often I want. If I don’t feel like writing, I don’t. I instead fill my day doing something I enjoy. It could be something as simple as lunching with friends or going for a long walk. A day later, my mind rested and suitably charged-up the ideas and words flow easily. On those recharged days, I sometimes write for eight straight hours.

Don’t rely on others to tell you how, when or what to write. Figure out what works for you. Satisfy your creative soul, and it will reward you ten times over.
