If the month of May rolled around and there were no prompts, no daily email encouraging you to write, no friendly community to welcome your “Yay! I did it” posts at the blog, would there be a gap in your writing practice?
Would you have fewer first drafts to work on the rest of the year?
Would another month go by without a focus on your writing?
And, if this is your first year contemplating the challenge, what do you hope to get out of it?
Leave a comment below, and let me know!
Should I Do This, Again?
Every year, as the organizer of StoryADay May, I face the question: am I going to do this again?
(It’s a lot of work!)
And every year, I look at the comments and emails from past years to help me make my decision.
And that’s why, every year, I find myself I find myself arguing with my coach about what is and is not a good investment of my time 😉
I’d love it if you would take a moment to think about what you hope to get out of the StoryADay May challenge, what rules you are setting for yourself (will you write every day? Once a week? Only on weekends?) and how you hope to feel at the end of the month.
Then leave a comment here. It’ll help crystalize your goals, which will, in turn, help keep your motivation high.
(And I can show them to my coach!!)
If you have questions for me, post them here, too.
Here’s to another May of ridiculous, glorious creativity!
P. S. If you want me to send writing prompts to your email inbox every day of the challenge, make sure you’re signed up here (yes, even if you’ve signed up in the past)
