Yikes, it's started!


Sweat70 has started and Mr Blue is determined to get tough with me from the outset! Which he needs to, because not only am I a sponsor this time round [I must be maaaaad!!!!] I'm also in the middle of one of my 'oh no, I don't want to write... it's too hard...' things. Which is a bit inconvenient to say the least...

No, seriously, I was feeling like that, but whilst taking a walk up into little town, to the bank [and forgetting to call at the chemists, which I was supposed to call at] I did have a bit of inspiration for the start of my next WIP, which I plan to 'sweat' over, to get at least a goodish chunk done by the time the challenge ends in January. I'm still debating between first and third person, but am veering closer to first at the moment. And even if I start in first and it's a misfire, I'll still have the storyline that I can rewrite in first, won't I?

Fox, it's a motivational writing challenge. A couple of hundred plus writers all agree to write a certain number of words a day for 70 days, and we all band together to encourage each other. There's a group blog where we post our progress on certain days.

It works for me, because sometimes I need that extra encouragement to make me write each day.

I"m in the Oh No I don't wanna write moods either. Hence setting tough goals for myself.

I love Mr. Blue!

Yep, Mr Blue is inspiring me no end LOL

Ava said...

Yay Wendy! Congrats on taking the leap to being a sponsor, we'll all be looking to you for motivation (no pressure, lol)

Portia Da Costa said...

Hi guys, glad you like my Mr Blue. I am such a slacker that I need two harsh coaches rather than just one!

And as for me being a motivator... hilarious! My tactic is to make everyone feel better about their progress because mine is so pathetic. :)
