Grow a Daily Writing Habit with These Three Things

Noticing the world around you is an important part of being a writer.

Doing so provides us interesting details and experiences that can seep their way into our writing.

But just noticing these things is not enough. We must write them down.

When I am working on fiction, there's a daily journaling format that I like to follow.

Every day in my journal, I will respond to these three prompts:

1. Something new I noticed.

2. Something I heard. (Write the dialogue as close to real as possible.)
