Your Atomic Writing Habit Or Rather Your Habitat?

What if I told you that your habitat is equally important to your habit?

Honestly, writing seems something simple at first. But when you’ve committed your all to keep on writing consistently, you want to get better at what you do. There is nothing wrong with that.

Welcome, you’re an addict too! Experiencing a writer’s high.

Writing has proven to be something that I enjoy a lot.

A few years ago, you could never have sold this to me! Sometimes it’s strange how we change, isn’t it?

This change is in the aftermath of consistent and repetitive thoughts and the actions that follow those thoughts. Together they are atomic habits manifested.

“If you can maintain your writing habits for five years straight, your success will be inevitable.”

-Tim Denning-

Great Tim, but that’s easier said than done, you know that.

Still, there is a lot more to it, I would say.

Often, the state my mood reflects is already a reflection itself, a reflection of the impulses from the environment that’s surrounding me. It’s everything, meaning: the noises, the non-noises, the smell, the airflow or wind as you prefer, the natural outside color spectrum…

I am by no means an exceptional writer, not yet. My goal is to improve my writing incrementally, and I take my time to do so. Hopefully, you can resonate with that idea. On that path, I would like to take you with me, so you can benefit from the elements which catch my attention on that amazing road of great writing. Or from my mistakes which I don’t hesitate to share with you.

The only reason why I write this post now is for you as a reader; besides the actual writing effort, there isn’t much reward to reap for me here. But I don’t care.

People change; I like to change progressively. Still, My nature is being hybrid. How about you?
