I find a daily practice is pretty important, though I gave up the daily blog post because I didn’t stick to 500 words, and it kind of took over! What I notice is that when I’m writing every day, my brain shifts into writer mode and I constantly have ideas for more stories, and the writing flows much more easily.

Publishing does help me reinforce the daily practice, but I think it’s perhaps easier to have a quasi-hidden or at least separate outlet, and only put select bits on your main blog.
