One of the reasons that my friend started a writers group was to create some external driver to get us to write. Basically it was a game to get us to write so we would have an opportunity to get together socialize, to eat and to drink. But to get there, we had to write. We at least enforced that.
Ever since then I’ve looked for tricks to keep me writing. I’m quite passionate about the environment, so I started a blog and the drill was to write. It didn’t matter how great the post was, but to commit. It kept me writing for a year. But then life interferes.
