I prefer to write in longer stretches of time. I also prefer to write every day.
Life doesn’t cooperate. Life is very uncooperative. Most days I’m in survival mode and survival mode doesn’t allow for habits and rituals. However, If I break writing tasks into small enough pieces, I can occasionally tuck things into unexpected corners of some days.
I choose a goal.
Break it down into its smallest part.
Put it on my to-do list and make a plan for getting it done.
When it is finished
I make sure I know what the next step is and write it down.
…And on into infinity.
It’s not ideal but it does allow for progress.
