I’ve signed up for Angela Booth’s 100 Day Writing Challenge and I’ve decided to blog about it. The challenge started Sept. 22, so I’m already behind, but I’m not going to let that stop me. I’ve let too many things stop me from writing already, so I’m just taking a deep breath and jumping in. Maybe my journey will help inspire someone else. For the challenge we need to set five goals, so here they are.
1. Write at least 15 minutes everyday
2. Submit at least five articles/stories to magazines
3. Create an outline for a book
4. Start writing the book
5. Start blogging
For my first day, I’d say I’m off to a good start. I’ve written my 15 minutes and I’ve blogged. By sharing my goals, I’ve also made myself accountable. Whether anyone else reads this doesn’t matter. I’ve put it in writing and there’s no going back for me. By January 1, 2011, all of the above will be true.
