Committing to a creative practice isn’t easy. All the goal sheets and pep talks in the world won’t help if we don’t have the drive inside.

Take a moment today to consider your commitment and how it’s going so far. This might mean reviewing your writing goals and how well you’ve met them, but more importantly, think about how you feel about your writing practice.

Is writing something you have to make time for or is it something you simply do?

Is writing something you have to do every day or something you get to do every day?

Start to think about writing as part of who you are. Make it an intrinsic part of your identity, regardless of whether or not you’re published or if you intend to share your writing with anyone at all.

You are a writer. Writing is what you do.
