Writ­ing can be tough for some peo­ple. These strate­gies can help find your rhythm. Write at the same time each day. This can help es­tab­lish a rou­tine. Choose a spe­cific time to write, whether it’s in the morn­ing while you drink cof­fee, or be­fore bed, or any time in be­tween. Write for a set pe­riod. In the be­gin­ning, set a timer and write for 10 to 15 min­utes. As you get more com­fort­able with writ­ing, ex­tend the time to 20 min­utes or longer. Don’t worry about spell­ing and gram­mar. Your writ­ing is about record keep­ing and not pub­li­ca­tion, so write the way you speak, and don’t fo­cus on cor­rect­ing mis­takes. use a recorder. If you aren’t com­fort­able writ­ing, then record your sto­ries on a tape recorder or your smart­phone. This is also a good op­tion if English is not your first lan­guage and you strug­gle with writ­ing. There are many speech recog­ni­tion pro­grammes that can con­vert au­dio into text doc­u­ments.
