    I am writing Dutch now and mainly for my (professional) blog on my freelance website. It forces me to write a bit every week and right now that's enough.

    I started to get back into writing, mostly it's like little poems. I ended up getting some books on interesting writing prompts that might be able to help me out.

    I really want to write a book. I have so many things in mind to write but English is my first barrier. I tried to write in my language. When started to translate to English I stack. I also tried to go to school improve my writing skills ...not yet. looking for advice .

    I need to get some mileage. I've given up on the 'write a book' goal because that doesn't feel all that realistic and puts unnecessary pressure on. At the moment I just need to write and flex my writing muscles to strengthen them. Maybe then over time I will end up with something that I find satisfactory and perhaps send it over to people to read. Right now that is not happening yet. (And I am still shuddering at the thought of that one time when I send something to someone and I know now what a load of crap that was and how she must despise me as a result of that. Gah.)

      @citrus Have you ever read the fantastic book Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott? She advocates "shitty first drafts"- i.e., don't put too much pressure on yourself to write something good, just get it down, because you can always go back and fix it. If you haven't read it, it is SOOOOO good! You got this!
      😊

    What seems to work: Having time set aside for writing, getting started on something to overcome writers block, taking notes when I have an idea and organizing these into an outline later, sharing with somebody, organizing around a presentation or event, keeping my ideas and sources organized

    I have started a few stories on Wattpad, but never finished them. My goal is to write regulary. At least once a week :)

    Think about this daily. I have a short list of things I wish I'd finished by now. It's sort of getting too long for me to deal with.

    My aims for this goal are twofold:

    1. Write more blog posts
    I really enjoy writing blog posts, but it takes quite a bit of time and I've fallen out of the habit recently. I'm over at https://hexdrag3on.wordpress.com/ but haven't written anything since July!

    2. Write a journal
    There's something cathartic about writing a daily journal, even if it's just inane nonsense that nobody else would care about. It's also fairly entertaining to look back on in a few years and laugh about all the things you used to worry about which are now totally irrelevant.

    Obviously, in addition to these, writing stuff here on 43T also helps organise the mind too :)

    Daily planner entries do not count as "creative writing"

You can type any date in plain English like in 3 weeks or next month.
You can also type in recurring due date like every day, every week and every month.
