AKA: What Was I Thinking?!
OK, I”m a little nervous. Two days until we begin this journey of writing a story a day.
But it’s a good nervous. It’s an energetic nervous. I’m like a stallion in the gate, ready for the off. Quivering a little.
Already I’m noticing benefits from this Story A Day project:
I’m looking at the world in a different way: looking at everything as a story idea, noticing details, smelling things, wondering how I would describe situations, feelings, people, objects.
I’m connecting with other writers.
I’m blogging about writing and making it a priority.
This might get tough around May 13 or so, but I’m ready. I’ve got my family and friends primed to nag me about my writing, I’ve got a little black book of ideas. I have some backup strategies for days when it’s tough (keep watching this blog and your inbox for those strategies as the month rolls along).
What about you? Are you making preparations? Are you winging it? What do you do when you need to write but get stuck? Are you excited?
Let me know!
