The One Habit Every Writer Must Have

The Lesson

Pay Attention

As writers, we should be gathering details all day. What did the counter tops look like? What type of pen was given to him to write with? What did the silly misspelled signs say? I need to look around all day and teach myself to remember. Sometimes, I need to put away my phone and have real damn experience for a change. Jot down things as you go through your day.

  1. Well written! Thanks for a brief respite from subzero temps, blinding whiteness and windswept frozen landscape. Point taken.

  2. I enjoyed this. We forget to really look at the things that are right in front of our noses. What a wonderful reminder!
