7 Day Writing Challenge…

So in keeping with bringing the theme of writing back to this blog and to get my story, which i have been working on, off and on, for the last couple of years, finished, i joined the 7 Day Writing Challenge by The Write Practice.

7-day-creative-writing-challengei have been lurking at The Write Practice for a few years now and like reading the articles but i have not taken part in anything. i am hoping that taking part in this challenge will give me the push i need to finally finish this story i have been writing, or at least get it to a stage where i am happy to have others read it.

The challenge is to write something, everyday, for 7 days, and therefore forming a writing habit. And of course, as with any writing challenge, there is a word count goal, 1000 words a day. Doesn’t sound like a lot. It is totally doable. i know because when i do Nanowrimo, the daily goal is something like 1600.

Now it is Day 3 of the challenge. i met the writing goal on Day 1 and fell off the wagon on Day 2 (meeting just half the goal). i haven’t written anything for Day 3 yet (unless you count this blog post). But i am still feeling good about the challenge.

The Write Practice sends daily pep-talk emails and here is my favourite quote so far:

“Being a good writer is 3% talent,
97% not being distracted by the Internet.”
—Anonymous

How true that is! Hahha… So the idea is to write, write, write…

Wish me luck! Or better yet, ask me over the next few days, “How’s the writing going?”.

Thanks very much.

  2. Because of the war and crisis in Ukraine the number of its orphans is steadily growing. Unfortunately, we can’t make kids happy all over Ukraine. However, we can certainly help orphans at Shpola orphanage. That’s right in the very center of Ukraine. Follow the link https://hopenowusa.org please, your help is crucial.
