How to create a holiday writing habit.

Ok, so your writing is going on hold for the holidays. Or is it?

With the busy holidays coming soon you won’t feel in the mood for writing, right? Too busy? When you do write, do you write for hours at a time? It’s a drag, right? Here’s a solution for you.

  1. Take hold of your pen and write every day, no matter how little.
  2. If you can’t make time because of looking after children, make them write with you.
  3. Make it fun. Go out and find a place that inspires you and others to write.
  4. Reward yourself and others for your week’s writing.
  5. When on some days it doesn’t come out the way it should, don’t worry about it. Leave it till the next day and go and enjoy the rest of your day.
  6. Give yourself a time limit of 30 minutes a day.
  7. Find an hour to read books of various genres. Get the children to do so too.

It has been proven that writing 30 minutes each day creates a habit of writing. It also helps you improve your writing and communication skills. Writing every day is what all professional writers do. By doing the same you could produce a book in a month. If you have that end in mind, it is time to learn how to. Grab one of our writing courses. We teach you how to plan, write, and advertise your book the professional way. We can help you get published.

Holiday inspiration

Dreams do come true, just make little steps toward your goal.

Do you enjoy the school’s summer holidays, or do you and the children get bored? If bored then that is the time to get writing. What are your dream goals? You know, those things you always want but cannot have at the moment. They won’t happen without writing them down or drawing them. Try doodling too. Ok, let us get down to business. Draw a mind map of how you want to achieve your dream goals. Your goal may be a longterm one that will take a year or two to achieve but it will happen with a few steps.

For each large step that you have written down, one by one break these down into time manageable steps. For example, ‘save for a deposit’, could be broken down into monthly instalments into a savings account over a fixed time period which fits with your main goal. Publishing your own book could be broken into several categories such as writing, editing, cover design, synopsis and more. These can be broken down too such as ‘writing’ into the story planning, first draft, redrafts, design, and final draft. Once you have broken one category into a realistic time period you can fit other steps towards your main goal alongside this. For example, while writing your story plan you can plan your publishing budget savings. These are just some ways of planning to achieve your dream goals.

We offer writing and editing services to writers of all ages and genres. We also help your dreams come true by giving lessons in English and other things such as Arabic, religion, trauma recovery, handcrafts of various types and much more. See our ESOL page for these services. Now you can look forward to the summer holidays with pleasure. We will leave you with some thought.

Love your writing.

Some people write every day, some don’t. However, some love it and some do not, but all get bored occasionally.

Using new things creates new ideas… for your writing.

One solution is trying your hand at calligraphy or drawing mind charts, and from those drawing pictures of what you think would make a good story. Let your imagination go wild and then put your writing away for a day or two. After this time has passed look at it again. Does it make you think differently or of something new? Collecting photographs and cutting them up or rearranging them will help too. These are good ways to spark interest in writing and create it further. Introducing yourself and your children to calligraphy, chalk-boards, computer Word Art, and other inspirational media will help you all get interested too as will reading books alongside this for vocabulary.

Look deeper!

If you look into some authors’ biographies, through books or online, you may find that a lot use writing as therapy for themselves, or to get a political or religious viewpoint known as those in the Romantic era did. All who write need a reason to do so. Would writing give you more help with work or social life? Are you writing to help someone? Are you writing as therapy for yourself? If so what would make it more interesting for you – a new routine, or a new way of writing, or change of writing place? Whatever it is, take hold of it and use it to better your life and happiness. Without writing and reading books or online texts, there is hardly any communication, learning, or progression achieved. See our previous blogs for more tips. Look out for the next blog post next week.
