Practical Prompt 12-10-18

Don’t let the holidays stall your writing. Now is the time to test out new strategies to keep making progress on your manuscript. Try dictating into your phone when you’re away from your computer. Or, keep a notebook in your pocket while you’re shopping to capture brilliant lines before you lose them.  Experiment with a few voice-to-text apps for your portable device. If you’re revising, print out a hard copy of one of the scenes you’re working on and keep it with you. Then, if you’re stuck somewhere waiting, you can use that time to edit it. By getting creative, you’ll be able to move your project forward despite your busy schedule.

Write By Midnight Pep Talk 10-29-2018

If you’ve been keeping up with the daily writing habits you established during the 2018 Write by Midnight challenge, consider putting your skills to the test in the coming months as you prep for 2019’s WBM session in February. November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), when writers from across the globe pound out a 50,000-word manuscript in 30 days. Joining them is one way you can take your writing to the next level, or get back into the swing of things if you’ve let your day-to-day writing falter. If NaNoWriMo isn’t up your alley, push yourself to write for a longer period of time each day, or to put more words on the page than you’ve previously been logging. However you decide to keep the words flowing, share your thoughts and strategies with us. Hearing from you encourages us to stay the course, as well.
