One thing I have noticed is if you don’t do something every day you start to go days without doing it at all. Most people would recognize this pattern in working out. If you get in the habit of working out just a bit every day and then for some reason miss a day or two, that day or two starts to drag into a week or two. And before you know it it’s been months.
The same is true for writers. If I don’t write something, anything, down for a day or two it WILL turn into a week or more. And once out of the habit, getting back INTO the habit seems all that much more difficult.
I guess it’s like a muscle, the more you use it the more you use it. The less you use it the less you remember to use it.
Memory, muscles, intelligence, wit, humor, et al, if you don’t exercise it a little every day you start to lose it. Not that you can’t get it back once you remember to exercise it a little every day, but what a shame it would be to waste all that time when you could be exercising your body and mind every day to make it better.
Just a few random thoughts for today…
