The powerful process that will help you write more in 2017
Have you ever looked at the bibliographies of prolific writers and wondered how on earth they write so many books?
Do they just have an incredible amount of time to devote to writing?
A motor inside their hands that keeps them typing away?
A writing refuge where they can hide to block out all distractions from the world?
Actually, the answer is much simpler.
These prolific writers usually don’t lead unconventional lives nor do they possess any superhuman powers. Rather they have developed a single habit that anyone can master: setting a daily word count goal and following through every day.

What did all four of these people have in common?
Not only were they all highly motivated and creative individuals, but they also all kept some form of an idea journal.
An idea journal is not a diary where you have to record all of the details of your day. Rather, it’s a place where you jot down daily goals, achievements, observations, ideas for projects, quotes, or other bits of inspiration.
If you’re working on a project, you can fill your idea journal with updates on your progress, thoughts on how to improve the project, and anything else that motivates you.
A writer’s idea journal might be filled with ideas for stories or articles or blog posts. An artist’s might contain sketches or inspirations for drawings. Ultimately, the idea journal exists as a private place to plant your ideas and watch them grow.
