Hey guys! Hope the weekend was fantastic. I wanted to start this beautiful third week of May with two fabulous new blogs created by a few of my amazing friends –
Then, The amazing Elana Johnson, Suzette Saxton and Bethany Wiggins joined forces to create the What Writers Read blog. This blog, focusing on all things reading, is another must read to add to your blog list! Be sure to check our their contests.
Finally, the third part of this post – the not-so-shiny word part. I took up the Page-A-Day challenge on 5/15. And it has been going well…
I have written more than 8 pages (about 2K) in the past two days…but not on any of my existing WiPs. And not on some new amazing (or even lousy) idea.
Nope, I wrote the pages just for me. A series of writing exercises to get my creative juices flowing, because mine are pretty….stuck.
So, to get unstuck, I committed to writing something everyday. No pressure to make it part of a story, no need to edit or even reread. Just an attempt to get the words from my head onto the paper.
I am trusting the story will find me eventually, the words will slowly gel into something I pursue at some point.
And until then, at least I am writing something.
What so you guys do when the creative mojo is gone?
