You may have read about the Writer’s Boot Camp set my husband bought me from Barnes and Noble. I was reading through that day’s ‘workout’ and I’ve come to realize that I spend far too much time in unaccountable stages. Which means while I’m doing things I can’t specifically tell you what I’m doing, other than what I’m on like Facebook, a phone game, or some other form of social media.
At the end of the day, I can’t tell you that I’ve been productive nor that I’ve ended the day feeling accomplished. In fact, I generally feel quite the opposite when I get done. Entire days gone wasted in cyberspace, none of it getting me closer to my goals and dreams.
That being said I made a commitment to my writing in this book. I wake up an hour earlier every day to dedicate it to my writing. While it hasn’t been going on long and I am aware that it takes two weeks for a person to build up a habit…..it still feels good to be getting things done. In fact, just being able to sit down and do my work feels amazing. I end my day feeling like I accomplished something, but more so, when that hour is up I don’t want to stop. I want to keep writing and that feels even better.
While I have released, Malevolent Mind this year I would like to get one more out there before this year passes. So, that is my goal before the end of December. I have one draft of a novel completed, but it needs a complete teardown and rebuild for the second before I’ll deem it ready to move on to the cleanup process.
Until then it is time to log in my next day of the Writer’s Boot Camp. I can’t wait to see what it has me do next.
Remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
