This months writing was encouraging, surprising, and disheartening. The realization that I can write over 60,000 words in a month, which is equivalent to a Novella, drives me batty. I could write a Novella a month! Although, I feel as if I don’t have anything to show (outwardly) for this fantastic writing month I can already see improvements in my writing (personally).
My goal was to write 500 words a day, and I will be pushing myself to go further for the month of may. So, my goal is to write more consistently and aim to at least get over 1,000 words a day. If I don’t write for one day, I am not going to beat myself up about it sometimes a break is what you need to be inspired.
I was inspired this morning at the grocery store with a story that the cashier was telling me. Think like a writer, observe your surrounding, take note of conversations and people. I carry a small bag that contains colored notecards in it with me everywhere I go when I think of an interesting story idea, character inspiration or conversation I write it down on its assigned color-coded notecard.
Are you going to join me for the month of may and write every day? If so, I would love to follow your journey drop a comment below!
