Use the image above to jumpstart your writing this week.
Let’s do a short one to get us started. Set your timer for 7 minutes.
Write about: the cutest thing you saw today.
Writing Prompt for today: an unmasking or unveiling. Is your villain going to do a monologue about her evil plans? Or does your superhero become exposed? Or what about that liar down the street who is nicknamed “Chicken Little”? Or maybe your protagonist has been sneaking off to make pottery. Write all about it and feel free to share with us!
Happy Monday! I think it’s a while since we’ve had a timed writing exercise. Set your timer for 15 minutes and just keep writing about pumpkin spice.
Here’s the final Writo do Mayo 2015 post. Share your wrap-up information here.
- Did you accomplish more or less than you wanted?
- Did you learn anything about yourself? Or your writing/editing methods?
- Will you continue to do any of these things in the future?
There’s a supposedly scientific saying that it takes 21 days to make a habit. It all depends on the person. Sometimes it takes 18 days. Or 66. Or 254 until whatever you’re trying to turn into a habit becomes automatic or second nature.
Goals for Writo de Mayo always vary. I consider any movement towards making those goals something that can be marked “done” as success!
Everyone still here deserves a bit of fanfare and admiration.
Throughout the year look for more writing exercises. And fun! I’m going to set some mini-challenges the next few months to help make the road to NaNoWriMo easier for everyone.
For Sunday there’s a simple check-in. Any progress to report today?
Also – we’ll have a Writo de Mayo wrap-up post on Wednesday this week if you want to review and share your total progress or what you would do differently next time around.
