It's not always easy for writers to pick up the pen, just as some days runners don't want to log the miles.
But, they do it.
Many writers get together and challenge one another to word sprints.
They set a time and goal. Ex. 1,000 words in 60 minutes.
Writers, like runners, know that it's the daily practice that makes them stronger. I repeat: Daily practice makes you stronger.
Ready for a challenge?
To begin: Set a goal.
First, consider distance.
Can you hang in there for one week and write everyday, or are you ready for the endurance test of one month?
Two, consider quantity.
How much do you want to write each day?
Feeling shaky? Check your notebook for the ten minute practices. Count the number of words and make that your goal.
Once you have set your goal, write it down and stick to it. I'll be doing this too, so check in with me. We'll compare notes.
Ready, set, write!
