The more you write, the more you want to write

Not much more to say than that, but perhaps, I will. The more you write, the more you want to write. I am not advocating for binge writing, for hours and hours of writing in spite of having no desire to do so. That leads to frustration and burn out. I am advocating for consistency, a daily practice that nurtures your mind, your creative self.

Certainly, we have to learn a great many tools to be successful as academic writers, and if we are not focused on one or two or even three articles (or whatever) than all the writing in the world would add up to little. Yet, engaging in the discipline of writing each and every day (or most days), year after year leads to deeper thinking, deeper practice, and the results we want. It also increases our motivation for writing. Writing, begets writing.
