What better way to start the year than with a challenge? I printed and signed a contract to challenge myself to finish writing my novel in 90 days. In the contract I have agreed to complete a writing assignment everyday for the next 90 days, and devoting at least 2-3 hours each day to it.
This year I am not going to sit around daydreaming about the premise and characters of the novel I’ll someday write. This quarter I will write it, and if it’s terrible I’ll spend the next 3 quarters rewriting and editing to perfection.
So far I have completed three days of assignments, plus some supplemental writing exercises. Here’s to hoping that practice and a writing routine keeps the momentum going.
