Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Same time, different day. Try settling this as part of a routine and get your mind used to these exercises
✓ Trigger your imagination. At the start, use familiar people and places to base your writing on. In time, your imagination will be able to create new locations and characters
✓ Set time aside. Use the reminder function of this app to remind you to start writing.
✓ Make it a challenge. Use the app to openly challenge your friends to develop same habit OR make your own goal public with consequences in case of failure. Make up your own consequences, something that you wouldn’t want to do no matter what.
✓ Reward yourself. In short term, after every time you consciously chose this habit, pat yourself on the back and tell yourself how awesome you just did. In long term, keep in mind that writing is hard work and requires a lot of mental energy. Once a month, consider rewarding yourself with a new book for inspiration and research into finding your own style.
✓ Find a routine. Think of your daily routine and chose a habit you already have that writing can follow naturally. For example, if you already have a habit of journaling, once you cover the real- world events, focus on few sentences about an imaginary one as well.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Goals to work for. Always keep in mind what you want to achieve. Do you want to write more? Then set milestones of how much you want to write. What to write better? Set time aside to improve writing the same paragraphs;
✓ Going through blocks. Writer’s block is a common occurrence and it might feel that you have nothing to write about. That is a signal that you might want to explore new ideas and find new things to write about all together. But you have to push through such moments
✓ Multiple inspiration sources. Think a movie had a scene you imagined better? Write how you would have had it different Think an article is wrong? Write to yourself why you think that. Your mind is always working, you just need to guide your own thoughts.
