Book Writing Challenge – Day 1: The Writing Came Easy!
If you listened to yesterday’s podcast, you know that I’m starting a challenge of writing 1,500 words every day for 30 days. You can listen to the episode here.
Yesterday, I began this challenge. From 4:30 – 5:30 pm, I sat down to write. I pulled out my outline and started chapter 4. Over the course of the hour, the words flew from my mind onto the page. I ended up writing over 2,100 words. I couldn’t believe it, I blew my original goal of 1,500 words.
Writing is fun but it’s also hard work. I know I’m going to have tough days and good days. Yesterday was a good day and the words flowed easily. If you want to take your writing to the next level and you’re tired of dabbling in your writing, I encourage you to take this challenge and write daily, even if it’s 200 words.
John Grisham says if you write just 200 words a day, you’ll have a book just long enough in a year’s time.
I’m excited about my writing adventure today and I’ll update you tomorrow morning on my progress.
