If we want to get or keep an athletic figure, then we need to exercise often. The same logic applies to writing. There is no right or wrong amount of time to spend writing each day: it all depends on what works for you. If you see yourself as a professional and want to make a career out of writing, then you’ll have to spend more time doing it then someone who is doing it purely as a hobby.
Not only will you need more practice and more experience, you’ll also need to be more aware of the best time of day for you to write and the kind of mood you need to be in to really involve yourself in your work. Even if you’re only writing for fun, you should always try to do it a little bit every day so that you can keep those writing muscles active.
It can be something as simple as scribbling a haiku down on a piece of scrap paper or something as significant as getting a couple of chapters of a novel typed up on a computer. If you’re busy, get out your pen and paper and jot down some notes whenever you get the chance. There’s always a few minutes to write in the morning when you wake up, or at night before you go to bed. I often find myself typing rapidly on my phone after work, recording little bits of information, inspiration and verses that I’ve thought of throughout the day.
The point is that if you practice a little every day, you’ll gradually build upon your writing skills and find yourself a stronger, more experienced writer.
