Developing the HABIT of Writing- Notebook Routines by Ruth Ayres


I recommend this recent post by Ruth Ayres in which she discusses the importance of developing routines for writing in your writer's notebook. 

Like Ruth, I strongly believe that the secret to growing writers is to establish routines and expectation around writing. Quarantining time for writing to develop is essential. I find myself becoming twitchy if I don't feed my writing habit. It has become part of who I am.

'By using notebooks on a regular basis, students can learn to catch ideas and allow them to grow between writing workshops.'
