This month I am participating in #WriteMotivation to help keep me on track with my current work-in-progress (WIP). I thought it would be a fun, hopefully encouraging, way for me to keep focused on what I’m working on. The rules and roll call for July can be found here. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in make sure and sign up next month.
1. Write 5000 words on WIP (verse novel)
2. Complete at least one writing exercise each week
3. Write something every day
Five thousand words on my WIP is where I’d like to see myself at the end of this month. That may seem small, but it’s a verse novel and wordiness is not the goal here. It’s a challenge for me to whittle my typically verbose style down to something spare and adequately descriptive, but it’s a good challenge. I’m having fun.
I have been keeping up with writing exercises in my journal and I plan to share one or two before the end of this week. Would any of you be interested in participating in writing exercises if I posted one on a regular basis?
Success! I have written something every day. Not always on my WIP, but writing is writing and I feel good about the things I’ve been doing.
So, that is my initial goal list and first update all in one (I was out of town when things started and without internet access. Sorry for the late start!). Here’s to another productive week!
