I've been seeing emails today from 50/30 participants to say they've written zero words this week. Life has got in the way, people have been sick.
These are all valid excuses not to write. If you so choose. Because it is still a choice.
I am challenging each and every one of you NOT to end the week with zero words. Take half an hour, take ten minutes and write.
Add to your word count.
Don't look at that huge word goal that is looming in front of you, and give up now. Just write.
A chapter. A page. A paragraph. A sentence.
You will feel better for it. You will have achieved something for the week. Not your daily goal. Not your weekly goal. But something.
You need to show your life that you are in charge. That you still choose to be a writer. That you still choose to write. No matter what it throws at you.
At a conference a couple of years ago, Anna Jacobs said 'Nobody gives you the time to write. You have to steal it.'
Steal it now.
The week is not yet over. Don't leave the week unwritten... Write!
