"Sit in the chair. These four words changed my life. For a long time, I was an aspiring writer. I aspired daily, but I didn’t make writing a priority. Instead, I spent time passively parked in front of glowing screens: watching TV, perusing Facebook, checking email.
Ultimately, I didn’t become a writer until I developed a writing habit. People don’t learn how to write via osmosis. It takes work. So: forget word count or page count, and don’t worry about creating the perfect writing space. Instead, focus on sitting in the chair distraction-free, writing for at least an hour a day. Do this for a month and you will improve more than you thought possible."
