It’s Wednesday, you know what to do. Write something. An outline, a paragraph, a list. If you have time, write a short story or a few scenes. Revision counts. A blog post, or even better, write a few posts to save for times when you’re so busy you don’t have time to write. Do ten minute sprints. You might be surprised at how much you get accomplished.
Change up your routine if you normally write every day. Go outside, or to a coffee shop. If you normally use a computer, grab a journal or notepad and see if inspiration hits, and vise versa.
TURN OFF YOUR WI-FI!! Don’t worry about emails or Facebook or Twitter or anything else. All that matters is writing.
The important thing is to write. Make it a weekly don’t-mess-with-my-writing-time thing. If not today, then pick a day that works for you.
If you would like a prompt:
- Since you’ve wisely turned off your ability to access social networks, now would be a good time to write a piece about why you can’t seem to get away from Twitter/Facebook/etc. Perhaps a persuasive argument on why social networks are important for writers.
- Why do you blog, or if you don’t blog, why do you write? What do you get out of it?
- Use the picture. What on earth is that?
