And so, I said
yesterday all the days that I want to write more.
This is how I’m going to do it.
Write 500-1,000 words a day. Fiction or non-fiction. Story or essay.
Read a book a week. Doing Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenge to help with this. Although, I really don’t need any help with this one!
Write/Draft one complete short story a week. From a prompt or my, um, archives. Open to story sparks, if you’d care to throw them at me. Might post my efforts here for feedback.
Journal daily. Not really into the concept of Morning Pages these days. But we shall see.
Write more snail-mail. I used to be really big on this. Freed me up for other writing, and I met some wonderful friends. Anyone wanna be penpals?
And y’know, accountability and all that
bullshit good stuff. I will mostly report back to Isla, ha! But I’ll also try to blog here at least three times a week. More is a bonus and may be a list.
A note on time management. Isla still takes an afternoon nap. She’s a good kid. Words will happen when she sleeps, either in the afternoon or at night.
Let’s see if we can pretend there’s 25 hours in a day.
