The Novel Push Initiative is Nick’s idea, and I think I managed to finish the month out this time around. Still waiting on him to do the final tally, but maybe I scraped through.
Maybe I didn’t. But that’s not really important. What’s important is that IT WORKS. The whole point of it is to build a habit of writing on a daily basis, and it’s once again ingrained in me. Yesterday was Nov 1st, but I still sat down and wrote for 10 minutes. Never once did it occur to me not to do it.
Today, I am already feeling the itch. There is no doubt within my mind that I will write. I think by setting an achievable goal (10minutes a day for me), you set yourself up for success, so even if it seems like a big task initially, you find yourself making progress.
So it just goes to show, that making the effort on a daily basis really does help you develop a habit. Now that I know it works for writing, I will have to start using it in other areas of my life.
Like, exercise. A friend has suggested we climb the mountain. I think it’s a good idea, though it will take me a fair while to get my fitness up for it! Time to plan.
