It's Not A Sprint, It's A Marathon.
Everyone knows that the key to becoming a better writer is consistently writing every day, but that's often easier said than done. A kind of Couch-To-5K for writers, It's Not A Sprint, It's A Marathon is a one-page site that details a simple method for creating a daily writing habit.

Instead of throwing yourself into another impossible self-imposed writing schedule, you'll be asked to a step back and focus on consistently sitting down to write. In the beginning, your output will be really low, but over time you'll gradually increase your daily word count until, before you know it, you'll be where want to be.

It's not revolutionary or mindblowing, and I'm not pretending to be some kind of guru, but it's what worked for me (after a decade-plus of frustration) and I thought maybe other aspiring writers could benefit from it as well.
