Write Every Day?

“Read and write four to six hours a day. If you cannot find the time for that, you can’t expect to become a good writer.” – Stephen King

Do you write every day? Some do, some want to, while others find the act of writing just to write monotonous. Where do you stand?

Those that write every day might have the luxury of not worrying about a 9 to 5 with a side of mandatory overtime (is this legal? Apparently, it is), they might also have method to their schedule and juggle priorities in order to make the time for the 2000 word quota. For those that put in the time and lay down the words each and every day, how do you manage you time and responsibilities?  Those that want to throw down the words would benefit from you feedback.

For those that find the task monotonous, perhaps its the concept of writing just to write to be useless. Some like to start off with an idea, a concept, something worthy of their time, and they may find the process needless because of a lack of understanding of what it means to write every day. What I mean by that is what are you writing? A stream on consciousness? Adding words to a novel? Playing around with a short that may or may not go anywhere?

Please leave you feedback in the comments and share to those that could use this information to help grow as a writer.



  1. If I can get two hours a day in, I’m happy. During NANO I was averaging around three to four a day. It was hard, but I managed. If I didn’t have a day job, writing is all I would do.

  2. I guess i think more about the stories,than i write.Write to me isnt the main stream,i like the story and my history,but i dont write too much.I think few writing is better,because the story means more than the quantity of words she have.Of course,how much,better.But quality is better than quantity.I leave my life,take a coffee,talk with my family and just then i write.I dont like to write anything,must be some good and one phrase must mean more than a hundred pages.Yes i write every day,but with ease.
