Runners eat right, exercise, get plenty of sleep, and generally take care of themselves in order to run at their peak. What do you do to write at your peak?
Writers who are serious about their craft might find their performance much improved if they approached their craft with the dedication of a runner, or a musician who practices 8 or more hours a day, or a skater training for the Olympics.
We're approaching that time of year when many of us renew our dedication to ourselves and those things we love. For me, writing is one of those things. It is my profession, but it is also my avocation, my passion. When I am not writing, I am thinking about writing.
How about you? Are you devoted to your writing? Do you practice your writing? Sometimes we only think we are writing when we are being paid for it. That's not the case. Writers write.... some for practice, some for clients, and some for just the sheer joy of it.
If you're devoted to your writing, consider your writing routine and your life routine and alter your habits to ensure you are performing at your peak.
