My 500 Word a Day Commitment...Wish Me Luck
I'm on a new path for my writing adventure! As a test and a commitment to my writing, starting today, I'm going to write 500 words EACH day for the next 30 days!
Yes, 500 words for the next 30 days!!
For me, that is a huge commitment, but it is absolutely necessary.
Why, you ask? Well, because I'm a procrastinator. It's true. Me. The Overachiever and Control Freak has issues with procrastination when it comes to writing. The main reason....I love to read. I mean, I LOVE to read. So, while I'm sitting here after a long day of work and trying to relax, I will start a new book and enjoy the world it takes me to.
What I sometimes fail to do, is sit down in front of the computer and delve into the world of my characters and their love and life, troubles and sorrows. By the time I get ready to write again, my internal deadline clock says I have to write for eight hours straight, without food or drink. That I must suffer for my craft and write the entire story in a day. That's just no good for anyone - including the people who purchase and read my stories.
Therefore, I'm turning over a new leaf. Starting today. This is going to be really good and I'm excited to get started.
Wish me luck my friends!!
Love and Hugs,
