A Habitling is a small behaviour that represents the first small steps towards making your creative vision a reality.
For example, a useful Habitling for a writer might be writing a single sentence everyday at a given time in a note taking app on their smart phone.
Will they be able to self-publish from their phone? Possibly. But the aim, in this case, is to get into the habit of writing every day.
Habitlings help you reduce the big scary dragon of a project into a cute little critter that will accompany you on your creative journey.
