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:
- Get your character (who is the least likely to imbibe) roaring drunk
- Take your most arrogant character and have something embarrassing happen to him/her.
Pat Metheny once said, and I paraphrase, liberally and laboredly, that the closer you get to something the farther it seems; I therefore surmise I must be getting very close to writing something of great moment.
