It’s Wednesday, you know what to do. Write something. An outline, a paragraph, a list. If you have time, write a short story or a few scenes. Revision counts. A blog post, or even better, write a few posts to save for times when you’re so busy you don’t have time to write. Do ten minute sprints. You might be surprised at how much you get accomplished.
Change up your routine if you normally write every day. Go outside, or to a coffee shop. If you normally use a computer, grab a journal or notepad and see if inspiration hits, and vise versa.
TURN OFF YOUR WI-FI!! Don’t worry about emails or Facebook or Twitter or anything else. All that matters is writing.
The important thing is to write. Make it a weekly don’t-mess-with-my-writing-time thing. If not today, then pick a day that works for you.
If you would like a prompt:
- Take a novel that you think was bad but could have been good and fix it. Not the entire thing, unless you’re so inclined.
- In honor of all the rain in west Texas, write a piece about a flood.
- Use the picture below. Imagine you’re the raindrop hitting the man’s hand. Tell the story of your destruction/evolution/destiny/whatever you come up with. Be sure to click the picture, it’s even cooler up close.
