How to Get Back in the Habit of Writing Every Day

3 pages every day is 1,095 pages per year

This morning I woke up at 6:00, brewed my coffee, and wrote three pages of fiction by hand. It was my first time writing fiction in over a month. I felt like shit, not just because it was early but because I knew that If I had kept up this habit, the novel I’m working on would be done by now.

Getting back to work on the novel means accepting that today is all I have. I can either show up and do my best or wallow over work that didn’t get done.
