106. Inspiration Can Harm You
Feb 12, 2021
Leandre Larouche

As a non-fiction writer, you need to realize that inspiration can harm you. It’s counter-intuitive, but the truth is, you don’t write books in a vacuum. There are other areas of your life you need to take care of to be the best writer you can be. By writing at the expense of the other areas of your life, you indirectly hinder your writing. For example, if you stay up all night to write because you were suddenly struck with inspiration, then you ruin your momentum for the next day. You don’t need inspiration to write books; you need systems! Watch our free training on the 3-step Stoic writing method that can help you write your dream book in 16 weeks.
