As you develop your daily writing habit, focus on how triggers can help you become a more productive writer. Analyze your routine in the moments before you typically write. Look for repetitive or consistent things that can serve as a Pavlovian-like reminder that it’s time to work on your manuscript. For example, if you brew a cup of tea before you sit down to write, brewing tea becomes the action that signals your brain that it is time to write. Also, be aware of triggers that can distract you from your writing and take steps to silence those before you get to work.
