Do a little every day

Dec 3, 2012 | Writing A Book

A client asks: “Should I write every day?”

My answer: Some people write every day and others don’t. Both ways work. But I think you should make sure you do something on the book every day.

Writing a book is a big project. For most of my clients it’s both bigger than any other writing project they’ve ever done and bigger than they expected. Most of their book projects take more than a year.

There are lots of things you can do to move the book forward. You can do a little research or some background reading or edit a few pages. That may not seem like much, but over a year those little things add up.

The most important reason to do something every day is to keep your spirits up. Even a little bit of progress perks up the spirit. So every day do a little something to move your book forward, even if you don’t write a single word that day.
