If there’s one thing I hear published writers say more than anything else, it’s the line “Write every day.” And to be honest, it seems like pretty good advice. But should we as writers write every single bleeping day? Well, I think you’ll get different opinions depending on who you ask, but personally I don’t write every day.
I think it’s more important to write consistently than anything else. Some days, you just can’t get the words in, and that’s okay. Maybe you have a wedding to go to and you’re the best man. Whatever the reason, it’s impossible to write every single day, but that’s not to say you can’t write consistently. I don’t write every day, but I try to do it consistently. That’s what really matters.
Now, I should conclude by saying that saying write consistently could turn into a slippery slope of non-productivity. Right now you say to just want to take one day off because you have a cold, but the next thing you know, you could be taking several days at a time off. So, it’s important not to fall into this trap. Write consistently, even if it’s a couple hours every other day.
