Repeatedly #NaBloPoMo

“We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

~ Aristotle

For the past twenty-five days I have been repeatedly writing. I don't think many of the posts would be considered excellent. But I agree that the habit of writing is an excellent habit to cultivate, and my hope is it will lead to excellent writing.

At first, I had to remind myself to write every day. But That turned into thinking about what I could say. About the best ways to say it. About the struggles of writing a life (and public ally!).

I don't love putting up posts that aren't well-thought out and fully relevant... But sometimes I have to let go of the idea that EACH post has to be excellent... The important thing is to develop the excellent habit!

What are your writing habits?


  1. I'm enjoying reading this posts. It all does not have to be perfect. Practice does make perfect. I see writing being more a process and journey and less of a destination. Rather, we approach various destinations along the way.

  2. I too love to write. I appreciate your reminder to develop the habit of writing since I do struggle with this. I have a gift for finding all kinds of things to do instead of focusing on the novel I'd like to finish, including working on my blogs. Have to get more disciplined!
