I read an article (recommended by a friend in my writing group) today about 10 ways to stay fired up about my writing goals. It was all the things you expect, but in an order that made it more palatable. In other words, “write every day” was not the first suggestion. Nor was it the last. I loved number 3 (“Accept your messy life and your messy house”).
So I’m putting this post up here as my answer to number 9 “Enter the game.” It also applies to numbers four, five, and eight (the dreaded “write every day” suggestion).
What I did to advance my writing today includes editing chapter 18 to prepare it for the gauntlet of critique group. Luckily I have two amazing critique groups who give really good and kind and gentle feedback.
I feel good about this.
