In any long term project, working at it consistently is what keeps progress moving forward. At the beginning, it feels like it will never be done. Even halfway through feels like the end is still so far away. Writing a novel is a huge project. Progress is sometimes tremendously slow. It might even feel sometimes like you’re moving backwards as you have to step back and do more research, more character work, more plotting.
The point is to keep moving forward. Don’t let the details overwhelm you. Have a bad day? Let it go and have a better one tomorrow.
Here’s your writing prompt for this week:
Write down how much money you expect to earn as a writer this year. Subtract the amount you already made.
Whether you’re earning money with your writing or not, think about what you want to be earning. Now, make a plan to get one step closer to your goal.
It’s play week! The story is in the dice. Use one, or use them all to inspire a scene, a poem, an entire novel. You win the game if you’re having fun!
