Get your writing groove on!
I was lucky enough to have my friend G over at Flights of Fancy as a cabin mate for Camp NaNo this past month. Several of us were talking about how to keep up the momentum once the month was over and G had a great idea: Project 10K.
The challenge is open to all — go check out her post: here.
If you can write 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo or Camp NaNo, or even 20,000, then try challenging yourself to write 10,000 every month. That’s only 333 words per day. Or if you write like me, 2,500 words each weekend. That’s nothing! Okay, not really. Some months, it might be easy. Other times, it’s going to be a real challenge.
So not nothing.
If you’re revising, you can challenge yourself to edit 10K words instead. You might still end up with 10K words when you’re done, but they’ll be better words than they were before, right?
I’m going to have a busy couple months ahead of me, and then… oh wait, it’s going to just get busier come fall. So I really need a fire under my butt if I’m going to get a decent amount of writing done in my “free” time.
Thanks for stoking the fire, my friends.
So this is my commitment: I am going to try to get that 10K badge every month between now and NaNo, and then keep going after that. Whew, I’ve said it out loud. This is like telling people you’re going to quit smoking, right? Now you really have to do it!
Are you with me?
I didn’t hear you. Shout it louder!
ARE YOU WITH ME?
Hang on, writing buddies.
Because we are going to ROCK THIS.
