A Whole Year of Writing

The other day I completed a whole year of writing every day. Inspired by The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron, the 750Words site provides motivation and accountability for writing.

I suck at accountability for the goals I set for myself. Too many external pressures cause me to drop the things I want to accomplish for me. So instead of writing, I take the kid to soccer practice. Instead of marketing my business, I grade papers. I need something or someone to task me with my own professional development.

It turns out that badges and little green X’s are great motivations for me. I’m proud of my year of writing every day. While I am NOT doing NaNoWriMo again this year (that kicked off my year of writing last year), I have developed good habits and a priority for my writing that looks like it might lead to a few books. (Here’s hoping)
