So my writer’s group has made a pact to write a page a day for the entire month of June. When we came up with the idea I was fully on board and gung ho about it. I reassured the others it wouldn’t be difficult, you just had to make time. Well it’s day three and I’m finally writing. Silly me, I forgot how often life gets in the way, and how lazy I can be.
Tonight I have three pages. So it’s like I wrote a page a day. Shhh, don’t tell, I won’t if you don’t.
Anyways, I’m excited about this challenge, I like the excuse of having to write. I haven’t been feeling super motivated lately and this is a good kick in the butt. I plan to continue writing everyday, if I put it off again I know it will be several days and then I’ll have to find even more time to write many pages.
Also having a writers group is awesome. A) nice to talk to fellow writers, no one else understands the pain like one who feels it to. B) fun to hear other peoples writing in progress and discuss the challenges and triumphs. C) its best for accountability, we have to bring something to read to the group which means we have to write.
It’s getting rather late as I write this, so I’m gonna end it with this. If you’re a writer join a group if you can, some quick googling will surely give you positive results (it did for me) and join the page a day club. Get you’re writing friends to do it with you, or just do it for yourself to see if you can. You’ll be surprised at the result.
