Today we're talking about scheduling time for writing and making space for writing - both to improve productivity and to create a new habit. Let's jump in.
Creating a new habit takes time, and with something like writing, it’s particularly effective to take advantage of your most productive time of day.
We often kickstart our mornings by checking our emails (here’s 7 reasons why you shouldn’t start your day with that) but if you’re a morning person, blocking off time to write would be better use of your time.
@CharlieGilkey over at Productive Flourishing has free planners ranging from project planners, weekly block scheduler, and productivity jumpstarter (among others). I’ve been signed up for their newsletter for years now, and it’s definitely worth it.

Dedicate a space to writing. If it’s at your desk, take a moment to organize or clean off the surface, starting with an organized environment, and set your intentions for that writing session.
Or head to the library, or a café, or somewhere else you know you’re particularly productive in writing. Do you need quiet? Or perhaps a bustling background?
Where and when do you write best?
