Last time, I wrote about my plan to write every day using writing prompts. As you may have guessed from my title, my plans changed on that front. The good news is that I wrote almost every day from December 5th until today, the 20th. There were maybe 2 or 3 days where I didn’t write, and most of those happened this last week (yesterday and the day before). But prior to that, I was finishing a rather large writing commitment and didn’t have time for writing prompts.
Now that my writing time is freed up somewhat, I’m back to deciding what to do next. I read in an article from Script Magazine that you should write a single line a day to keep yourself in the writing habit (it’s number 7 in the list), and I’m liking that idea a bit more than the writing prompts right now; it’s an easy way to keep writing even when I feel like I don’t have the energy for it (like during those few days off I took this last week). And who knows? Maybe once I write the one line I’ll want to keep going. So for now I’m going to give that a try, then reevaluate in a week or so. I’ve also just dug up an older writing project that I wanted to start about a year ago, so I might be working on that over Christmas, too.

Good luck with that approach. Let us know how it goes, ok? I’m always trying something new to keep me motivated to string words together. Sometimes it is a real challenge, that’s for sure!
