You know what the end of December is - that lovely time when we make New Year's resolutions and then, in many cases, cross our fingers and hope they'll stick.
As a writer always goal-setting. I often fall short of the goals I set myself but by having the plan and the goals I get more hits than I do misses. Still, writing can be lonely and finding motivation is hard. I'm lucky that I have a lovely writer's group here in Sydney and I am a member of some great online groups for chicklit authors as well.
Still sometimes the motivation to focus on the writing slides.
After doing #NaNoWriMo yet again in 2014 I looked at the lessons that I could learn from that and I decided that I really could find time to write 1,000 words a day. Not all of those words would be brilliant and many will get the chop later but I could put pen-to-paper or fingers-to-keyboard and write them.
Thus, I decided to make that my writing resolution for 2015. 1,000 words a day or 365,000 words across the year (That sounds scary but 1,000 words a day doesn't).
Then this week I thought about what motivates me and I realised the group force of #NaNoWriMo was another of its strengths so I set up a Facebook group for writers who also want to write #1000wordsaday.
Here it is if you would like to join:
Or if you would like to follow my progress you can follow the hashtag #1000wordsaday on Twitter or sign up for my newsletter for regular updates.
My next post will be looking back a 2014 and forward to the year ahead.
I am a writer of light-hearted contemporary women's fiction.
