It’s the official kick-off for my writing challenge today! I’m super excited! I hope you are too! So let’s get started!
Week One- write. This is the only task that will carry over from week to week. For the next 12 weeks, I want you to write.
This might seem super simple, so simple that you might be wondering, “Is she serious?” Well, folks, I’m as serious as 4 feet of snow melting around a house with a leaky basement!
I know you’ve probably heard it said before, but the number one thing that keeps a writer from being published is never finishing a project. Anyone can write. But it takes something special for a writer to actually finish something.
So today, I want you to commit to a writing goal. Make it ambitious but do-able. My goal is to write 5,000 words a week for the next twelve weeks (or until my current WIP is finished!). I know I might not make it every week, but I’m going to give it one heck of a try.
How about you? What’s your goal? Leave a comment below (you can comment until May 15th), stating your goal and you’ll be entered to win a $10 Amazon gift card, generously donated by Karen Cherry. Karen has a wonderful blog that you can check out here. And, you can read about how she just signed with a great agent! I love success stories, don’t you? Karen is a perfect example for this week because if she had never finished her book, she wouldn’t be happily celebrating signing with an agent!
So come on everybody! WRITE! Let’s hear some more success stories!
