    I write everyday, I have to make a limit that I should write too
    If I write more than the limit that is great. Making a goal helps me to write and not worrying about the editing, and grammar until after I am done. Some of the best stories or articles I have written on other sites have turned out wonderful.

    Sometimes I write everyday, it just depends on how the mental juices are flowing.  I try not to force myself to write.  If I do, it is not my best work.

    There are a lot of books that talk about "freewriting", where you just sit down and start writing - anything at all. Alternatively, you can use a "starter", such as "What I want to do today", "What I would like to get done this year". Any sort of starter as long as it gets you going.

    No, I don't write every day. Some days I prioritize my health or other work or friendships. Hope always to keep a balance. Stressing yourself to "write every day" just because somebody said you should will make you anxious.

    I've been trying to keep this goal! The key for me is to not set a specific time aside. When I put thoughts down as soon as they come, I don't feel pressured to make any come at all. It seems to be working, since I have about a dozen poems waiting to be made into articles on here, and 3 different article ideas. Cross your fingers that I keep it up, and I hope you find what keeps your juices flowing! I actually have a series of articles started on how to keep your writing motivation up even when you have a full-time job. Check it out if you're interested. smile

    As a technical writer, I write every single day, Monday through Friday, 8 hours or more, and think nothing of it: it's simply my job, my dream job realized. The time flies by.

    But, since I am not doing this for anything but personal enjoyment, writing articles tends to come and go in great batches: sometimes feast, sometimes famine. I know that if I wanted to set minimum requirements I could, but then it would seem like work and miss the point of writing articles to relax and write outside the box
