How To Write Everyday

Yes, it’s possible to write everyday.

You just need to start.

If you want to sharpen your writing expertise, check out these techniques I use to produce ungodly amounts of scripts for social media shorts and Tweets.

Here’s How I Write Every Day

Writing like anything is a habit. If you can build up the muscle of writing, it becomes no different than brushing your teeth or taking a shower.

Tell Yourself Something Bad Will Happen

In March of 2022, I moved in with Dan Koe. If you don’t know who he is, he’s one of the biggest content creators on Twitter and Instagram. I mention this because when I moved in with him, we talked about a viewpoint he and I shared.

Adopting the mindset: “If I don’t create every day, I die.”




Cease to exist.

Dramatic? Yup.

Necessary? Absolutely.

The #1 reason people fail is because they’re inconsistent. They write when they feel like it. They wait until it’s perfect.

They tell themselves “I’ll do it tomorrow.”

As a result, they never become anyone significant because they never put in the reps to get better.

It’s a way to avoid doing the work and give into their fear of judgment.

I’m telling you right now, start a Twitter account (now X) and publish every single day.

This helped me grow to over 250,000 followers.

Not when you feel like it. It needs to become almost like a healthy addiction.

Now, I’m not saying you need to log onto social media every day. I understand that we need time off. But I am saying you need to publish every day. That’s where social media schedulers and other tools come in.

Don’t Leave The Coffee Shop Until It’s Done Or They Close

One way I built my writing habit was having a goal to work towards.

The goal was to grow on Twitter and build my personal brand.

It gave me something tangible to work towards while building my writing habit.

Here’s what I did:

I picked 1 day out of your week to go to a coffee shop and write.

I didn’t allow myself to leave until you've scheduled a week's worth of content.

The result?

I cranked out an insane amount of content.

Show up everyday to the coffee shop, practice your writing and you’ll be a beast in no time.

Treat Everything as Content

From this moment on, you need to look at your life through the lens of a creator.

What do I mean by this?

Every day, you have thousands of thoughts, experiences, and interactions. Books you read, conversations with people, events that take place.

Look at these experiences in life and ask yourself, “How can this be turned into value for others?”

You need to consciously ask yourself this question until it becomes subconscious. Over time, you’ll filter experience through this lens and it’ll become automatic.

Here are examples of what I mean:

You have dozens of experiences that happen to you every day.

Document them. It counts.

Find Someone To Hold You Accountable

Now this is not for everyone but it sure as heck worked for me.

3 years ago when I started my online business journey and had $8,000 in my bank account, I invested $6,000 in a mentorship from Dan Koe.

To this day, it was one of the best investments I ever made because it lit a fire under my ass to finally take action with online business.

The money I spent with Dan forced me to make building a personal brand work.

I relentlessly read copywriting books and dropped tweet after tweet.

Had I never found a mentor, I’m not sure I’d be where I am today.

For some context, I built an audience with over 500,000 followers across social media.

I started as a freelancer and now own a Twitter Ghostwriting agency that does over $50,000 per month.

I owe it to accountability and not taking my foot off the gas when it came to writing almost every day.

Track Your Daily Writing Habit

There’s this book called The One Thing and the author mentioned something which stuck with me.

In the book, he talked about Jerry Seinfeld seinfeld's productivity method called “Don’t Break The Chain.”

Here’s how it works:

  • Choose a goal (In this case writing or tweeting everyday)
  • Get a calendar
  • Every day you complete the task, mark that day on the calendar with a big red X.

Each day, you start to build a chain of red Xs which motivates the next.

The main rule is not to break the chain.

Keep going, every day and you’ll maintain your writing streak.

Setup A Word Count

Have you ever opened up the Health app on an iPhone or worn an Apple watch?

You can see how many steps you’ve taken each day.

Instead of tracking your steps, track your words.

Write content everyday and then record how many words you’ve written.

Make it a goal to slowly increase the amount of words you write day after day.

You’ll amaze yourself with the progress you’ve made.
