Consistency is a crucial trait for a writer. It’s the only way to accomplish anything. Whether that means finding the same place to write, the same time every day, or making it a point to write routinely.
Here’s your writing prompt for this week:
Read a new book, and write your own take on what the jacket copy should say about the story.
What’s the next book on your to-read list? Before you read it, take a good look at the blurb. From this copy, you’ve already begun to make assumptions about the story. Take a moment to write down some of your thoughts. After reading the book, did it meet your expectations? Now, rewrite the blurb.
This month I’ll take a look at the word Consistency and what it means to a writer. Building the kind of momentum like I talked about last month depends on consistency.
Personally, I’ve been struggling to come back from a break that’s gone on too long. Finding a way to write consistently again is my goal right now. I’ll celebrate the small victories – such as taking my laptop to work with me and making the choice to write instead of read. Maybe it’s not much, but at least it’s a start.
What do you do to ensure you consistently move forward with your writing projects?
