When I announced I was going to do a My Novel Recommit challenge to get back to writing every day again, I didn’t realize I’d selected one of the busiest weeks I’ve had in a while at home and at work to do it.
But I did it. 7012 words in 7 days.
Many days I wrote until 1230am was up in the middle of the night with kids and then up at 630. It was rough. In the middle I knew I couldn’t do it. In the end I powered through. It’s always a thrill to meet a deadline.
If you joined me in the challenge, thank you. You helped me stay accountable. Special thanks to Maria Berg for competing.
What I learned the most from this writing challenge is that no matter the tools or limited time that you have you must keep writing. That is the one and only key to being a writer and for some reason its the hardest thing to do.
I hope you find sometime this weekend to write. Create a challenge or be ready when I put another one up on my blog next month.
