This evokes many questions, which will be covered in future posts: when you should write, where you should write, what to write, how do you write, and writing exercises.

But for now, begin to write every day. That’s the first step to becoming a successful writer.

For the most part, I do write every day, but I vary my labors, rotating between projects. I would never spend seven days in a row working on the same thing; that would become boring and the results would be unacceptable.
