Writer’s Word Count
I did a little giveaway last week and to enter you had to leave me a comment on "what holds you back from being the writer you want to be?" I got a great response and enjoyed reading about…..FEAR. Well I don’t enjoy that we experience fear, but there were many comments on people being afraid to write.
Last week on Monday, I created a "menu" or plan for writing. I set goals to hit a certain word count every day and I actually tackled it. I had my best week of writing ever, and it was amazing how when I finished doing what God had asked me to do, everything else in my life just fell into place. I didn’t spend the week being nagged by all the writing I had undone.
My house was cleaner and more organized than it has been in a long time, I exercised almost every day last week and my husband and the boys were well taken care of.
So I encourage you, do whatever it is that you know you are called to do. Just do it. Don’t dream about or dread it, just do it. And if you’re a writer, set a word count goal, for every single day and then attempt to meet it.
I think you’ll be surprised.
This week I’ll be tackling an increase in my daily word count and I’m just sure my housecleaning will equally increase. Well…..we’ll see.
