The usual December prompt is: write daily (as you define) at a consistent (-ish) time By how you define it, I mean you can commit seven days a week, or you can use weekdays only, or you can split the difference and take one day a week. Whatever your path, try to be Image Manipulation Service consistent. So if you take a day off, try to do it on the same day every week. And try to find a time of day that works, at least most of the time. For this prompt, keep your word count commitment small. before my day conspires Image Manipulation Service distracts me.

This month, I picked a consistent time of Image Manipulation Service day (after coffee but before doing other work) to delete a page or two. Most of the time I end up writing a little more than that, but doing at least a short handwritten page first is my daily commitment for this month. Do Image Manipulation Service I hit it every morning? Not enough. Sometimes I space out and just forget later in the day, especially on weekends. But I manage to do it almost every day - and it's been a tremendous energy and productivity boost. The hardest part of writing is often just getting started – and that way I get rid of the painful part.
I write a masterpiece page out of ninety-one shitty pages. I try to put Image Manipulation Service the shit in the trash. -Ernest Hemingway December is tricky For most of us, this is a tough month for habits. We have all kinds of distractions and family commitments, and our schedules are Image Manipulation Service completely out of order. This is actually what makes the “write every day” prompt useful. If you can get in the habit of doing a little creative work even when you're distracted, you'll be in perfect shape next year to tackle all kinds of creative growth. So if you want to play the game (I hope you do!), give yourself permission to be very flawed.
