Mastering the Habits of Great Writers

6.2K Flares 6.2K Flares ×

Ever wondered what sets the great writers apart from the good ones? It’s not skill. Not talent. No, it’s something else.

All great things come with practice, and writing is no different. If you want to move from mediocrity to mastery, you’re going to need to do what the masters do. You’re going to have to form new habits.

Here’s your opportunity

Sometimes, you don’t need more information. Sometimes, you just need to act. So let’s do just that.

(Note: The 15 Habits Challenge is no longer going on, but you can go through it at your own rate by clicking the links below.)

Great Writers Banner

For 15 days, I took my readers through a journey in which we practiced one essential habit all great writers have perfected. If you’d like to follow along, you can read each daily post by clicking the links below. I may do this again, so stay up to date through the following:

What we’ll cover

This series is inspired by the eBook, You Are a Writer (So Start Acting Like One). If you want to participate, you should probably get it (as we’ll be building on content in the book).

Each day, a different habit. Whether you’re joining the first day or the 15th, you can come here and see all the days (I’ll link to each as they’re published):

  1. Declare.Great Writers Badge
  2. Believe.
  3. Initiate.
  4. Practice.
  5. Prepare.
  6. Steal.
  7. Start.
  8. Build.
  9. Connect.
  10. Share.
  11. Declutter.
  12. Provoke.
  13. Publish.
  14. Brand.
  15. Serve.

Why you should join

Each day, I share one habit all great writers practice. Then you get a daily challenge to complete by the end of the day.

If you sign up, you’ll be expected to do some work, but you’ll also grow as a writer like never before.

So what are you waiting for?
