Writing is a skill that everyone can learn. Whether you’re writing a college essay, personal blog, book or creative article, learning to write is easy and fun.

Starting your habit of writing is easy — but it’s the repetition that will make it stick. Here are two ways to make writing a habit that you never forget to do:

  1. Set a timer for 10 minutes each day and write down everything on your mind without editing yourself. This will help build up your focus, which makes it easier to sit down and get into the flow with writing.
  2. Write in your journal every morning before you even start your day and every night before you go to bed. This will give continuity to your morning routine as well as your nightly one so you don’t feel like you’re starting over when tomorrow comes around.
