So, what can we do when we’re tired from writing but still want to maintain a consistent writing habit?
No surprise here, my first tip comes from my experience as a runner; cross training.
If you’re used to writing long books, try writing short stories. If you usually write in one genre only, dip your toe in another genre for a while. If you usually write fiction, switch to non-fiction.
This gives you a chance to develop different writing muscles. It gets your mind thinking in a new way, and in the end makes you a better writer. I’ve done this many times and it works like a charm.
Tomorrow, tip #2.
