Tonight I participated in a weekly Twitter chat with one of my favorite authors Aliya S. King (@aliyasking). She challenged her followers to a #30in30 writing challenge in which participants are challenged to write for 30 days straight. I was beyond excited about this post for several reasons.
1. Writer’s block had taken residence.
2. Laziness refused to work past the writer’s block.
3. I’d rather veg out on the sofa and sleep.
All three of these reasons are curses to a writer, amateur or professional. The #30in30 challenge is going to force me to work past the mental road blocks that prevent all of this awesomeness from being shared with the world. I’m hellbent on making the absolute most of these 30 days. I feel sorry for the pens and papers that will be sacrificed for the greater good.
A moment of silence for all the ballpoints and single rule paper out there.
Chat with you later.
