Last year I participated in A Writer’s March, and I’m going to do so again this year. What is Writer’s March you ask? It is where you set an achievable goal in your writing and stick with it. In a lot of ways it is like NaNoWriMo, but more relaxed. Instead of focusing on generating pages, which you can still do, the focus is on creating good writing habits that you can continue once the month is over.
Last year my goal was to write three hours a day and for the most part I met that goal.
This time around my goal is to write an hour a day. On the surface it looks like my goal may have shrunk, but in reality my life has changed. No longer do I have every morning to myself, and I’m working quite a bit more than I did last year. Unfortunately, as my life has changed the writing habits that I had developed no longer work for me. My focus this month is to develop new writing habits that I can expand on.
