On “Your Daily Writing Habit,” my daily podcast for authors since 2019, I draw on my 22 years of helping authors write books as a ghostwriter and book coach and share the habits that turn book writing dreams into published books. Those three types of habits are: writing fundamentals, productivity, and mindset.

Why are habits so important for authors? Because, as you’re about to see in this entertaining and informative comic, your brain LOVES habits! Your brain wants you to create a writing habit. When you turn the act of writing from random to routine, neuroscience research shows, you get better results.

How do you do that? Meet author Margena and her very… er…. animated brain to show you exactly how to build a writing habit and become a published author!

Moral of the Story:
Your brain likes habits.

Give your brain what it likes. It will write a book for you.


What Did We Learn?

  • Have a big goal? Schedule a regular habit to work on it.
  • Monitor your mood and adjust as necessary before doing your habit.
  • Set the conditions and cues of your habit (like Lady Grey tea, going on a walk, listening to a certain podcast or a music playlist).
  • Repeat, even when you don’t feel like it – ESPECIALLY when you don’t feel like it!
  • Consistency tells your brain: “I really want this to happen, please work with me!”
“Personal Paparazzi is a well-written and easy to understand guide to marketing your business like it were a living breathing celebrity in Hollywood. It is an inventive, dynamic approach to getting your brand out of the great unknown and into the hands of consumers.”
“Canyon Road is a great read! Christine Whitmarsh hits it out of the park with her first novel debut. She gets into your head and you feel the emotions and drama of the characters coming off the page; understanding their turmoil, and wanting them to break though.”
“Personal Paparazzi really blew my mind, especially when the authors explain the storytelling aspect that permeates the core of great advertising! It was a real eye-opener to say the least! I loved this book, and will be referring to it constantly as I move forward with my marketing plan. If you want to get your brand in the mind and hearts of your customers, you need to read this book!”
“If you are a fan of Elmore Leonard, you will be a fan of Canyon Road. Quirky characters leaving murder and mayhem in their wake while spouting a life philosophy that will make you stop and think. Truly surprising at almost every turn.”
