Don’t quit! I tried to write every day in November and started to get burned out. So I dropped back to 2–3 posts per week. It made a big difference. Some people can keep it up everyday, but I have to write other things for my teaching job, etc. Plus I’ve found taking a couple of days to find something I genuinely need to say dramatically improves the quality. Someone on here recently said that maybe you should write daily, but you don’t need to publish daily. You can also write “in your head,” which includes thinking through ideas and looking for inspiration.
