I suppose it’ll come as no surprise to anyone that I’m not perfect. I’m working on it but not there yet… So, on my quest for writerly perfection I love to read what other writers have to say about what works for them, what doesn’t, and what I should be doing. Someone on Twitter posted this great tumblr post a couple of days ago with writing advice from some pretty well-known authors. Heard of Margaret Atwood? Neil Gaiman? How about PD James? They all have advice for writers that should not be ignored. The original article is called Ruled Out and is well-worth reading.
So I did get some writing in, although not as much as I would like and now that my friends are here, it’s time to close up shop. But I did get 245 words written which is a better day than I’ve had in awhile.
After watching last night’s Opening Ceremonies, and watching some of the actual Olympic games today, I’ve decided to make a commitment: for the rest of the Olympics, I will write every single day, at least 100 words. That’s do-able. More than do-able. So hold me to it.
I hope you’ll write with me.
