Spring Into Creativity 14/30 – Reach for the stars

In today’s creative piece set lofty goals. Figure out how to express that in your art.

30 in 30: Day 30 – I hope you didn’t need a prompt to finish…

I hope you didn’t need a prompt to finish.

But if you do…

Write about accomplishing a goal. No matter how small it is, write about what it means to either you or your character.

Happy Writing!

National Novel Writing Month ~ Sprinted in through the finish line…

My track coach said you don’t slow up until the finish line is behind you.

 

So I clocked in 53,952 words and finished at 4pm today.

 

The big thing for me is that I set a goal and I saw it through.  I am so motivated right now to keep writing.  I am thinking of another goal to set.  I mean, I know I can do it now so I should keep at it.

Isn’t that how it works?

 

I know there is now editing and then doing my own layout work… I am my own worst customer… but let me celebrate this moment right now.

 

There doesn’t have to be a worldwide movement for you to challenge yourself.  You don’t have to write a novel.

Set a goal.

Give yourself a time frame.

Work hard to meet it.

 

And most of all… remember to surprise yourself!!!

November is National Novel Writing Month

I have been on the fence about participating because I failed miserably last year.  Then I spent the end of October reading a huge portion of my past works.  The unfinished stories really bugged the hell out of me.  Not one for quitting, I decided that I am going to give it a go again.

I have two projects I am working on, to satisfy my insane need to multitask.  My goal is to finish at least one of them by the end of the month.  I will probably stray from the typical way NaNoWriMo is done but I am going to document it all here on this blog.  I am not posting the actual novel on here.  But I will post my daily progress starting this evening.  The goal is 50,000 words by the end of the month.  The hard part for me will be the NO EDITING rule.  (Pray for me ya’ll!)

I think you should all give it a go with me.  The website is http://www.nanowrimo.org/ and you should go there and register.  There is all types of stuff on there.  In some areas they have meet ups.  There are tons of tips.

For all my poet friends and followers… why not write a poem a day for thirty days.  I am going to continue to post prompts up.  I will try to post one a day for those who need inspiration.  At the end of the month you could have a wonderful poetry book!

If you write non-fiction, you can still do this challenge.  Write your memoir.  Write about your favorite topic.

The key… JUST WRITE!!!
