The Key

I can’t tell you the number of times a fellow writer asks me, “How do you get so much writing done?”

This always brings a smile to my face because I KNOW myself. I’m a very, very slow writer. If I try to write something in 4 hours, it usually takes me 8 or even 12 hours instead. Over the years, I’ve taken a nap most days. Not just a 15 minute nap, but often a 1 or 2 hour nap. I’m a morning person so I usually don’t get much writing done after 2:00 in the afternoon.

And yet time after time, other writers ask me how I get so much accomplished as a writer. Sometimes I’ll get asked this question more than once in a single day by totally unrelated sources!

You see, I KNOW the secret to accomplishing significant achievements as a writer. I KNOW the key to writing success. It’s the key to abundant living as well. I’ve been doing it daily for years and years.

What is this key? It seems impossible at first because it actually adds a big commitment to every day. It doesn’t seem possible, either, but I can testify that if you add this daily routine into your life, your writing will never be the same.

Each and every single day, I set aside one entire hour and meet with God. I find strength. I get encouraged. Ideas for writing projects pour into my thoughts. I am restored and renewed as a writer and also as a child of the King.

If you would like to explore the idea of adding this key into your own writer’s day, I invite you to visit my website, One Hour Each Day. Every week or so, I post an encouraging thought or invitation to join in the dance.
