As the title of the blog suggests we are More Than Writers. This is true in so many ways. Life can often get in the way of our writing time. We sit down to write with the best of intentions and then something happens that drags us away from our desks. Before you know it the day has gone and not a drop of writing done. Even if we are at our desks, by the time we have answered email, done some marketing, checked social media, made a few phone calls, made a cup of coffee... You get my drift. It can seem as writers that we get a lot done, just not our core business of writing.
So what can we do to change this? I am trying something which will hopefully get me back in the writing groove. This October I have joined a couple of 31 day writing challenges. I have pledged to write every day for the whole of October. This does not need to be a specific number of words, but I need to write every day. This can be any type of writing, including this blog, and is designed to develop a consistent writing habit. I have committed to working on my novel and have decided that this blog won't be part of my writing for the day. For you this may be different. One thing I do know, I'm not entirely sure that writing Facebook statuses or tweets count towards the daily habit.
Whilst it is not a set number of words I do have to report in each day with a total word count for the day. This will keep me accountable.
I'm inviting you to join me on the challenge. You don't have to resort to anyone but yourself but keep a tally in a notebook. Let's see where October can take us in terms of our writing. Now if you will excuse me I am off to do some writing. Before I go, the picture at the top is me writing at Field Marshall Montgomery's desk. Now that's what I call inspiration.
