It has been nearly two months since I have gotten any really good writing done - since completing NaNoWriMo in November. It's not unusual for me to get little writing done in December; but here we are, nearly done with January and I've written very, very little. I'm in a writing rut and I am definitely feeling it. This is what the hazy 'they' mean when talking about sittinf rear in chair and writing. I'm afraid if I wait for the elusive inspiration to strike it'll be midsummer and I'll be upset about not getting anything done for half the year.
So, I have decided to commit myself to a writing challenge I found at Inkygirl. I will write at least 500 words of fiction per day. She has other levels - 250 and 1,000 words per day but I feel that 500 is the right challenge for me at this time. I have a really pretty calendar that was included in one of my craft magazines in December. It is going to be used simply for tracking my writing goals and accomplishments for 2012. I plan to write the 500 words per day in each square - along with other writing goals to be shared in future posts.
