90 Days

Creating a new habit takes at least 90 days. Today is the 90th day for this daily blog but it isn’t yet a habit. Writing a post every day isn’t as challenging as it was when I started, but it isn’t yet automatic. Habits, you’ll remember, are the things we do without thinking. They’re our autopilot.

Since daily blogging isn’t yet automatic, the clock starts again. Another 90 days.

What habits have you changed in the past? How long did it take? How does it feel now that the new habit is firmly in place?

About the author 

Valerie Francis

Valerie Francis is a bestselling author, literary editor, and podcaster with a passion for stories by, for and about women.

Each month, Valerie recommends books from literature’s best female authors. Selections come from every genre because women write, and read, in every genre. The Women’s Fiction category offers up some terrific novels, but these days there’s a strong female presence in thriller, horror, crime, and other genres traditionally dominated by male writers. No matter what the publishing companies may think, in the 21st Century, Women’s Fiction is whatever we want it to be.
