I’m one of those people who continually says, “If I could just get organized.” Over the years, it’s become my mantra. When I say it, my husband simply smiles. (Kind of like I smile when he comes home from a round of golf and says, “I finally figured out what’s wrong with my swing.”)
But a side benefit of doing the Write by Midnight challenge is that I have been more organized this month. I came up with a realistic writing schedule—one that I think I can actually maintain. And though I didn’t reach all my writing goals—I was a tad overly ambitious with those—I did work on writing projects every day: fleshing out short story and novella ideas, as well as getting back into writing regularly on my novel, even if the daily word count was a little erratic.
Now I just need to keep up that new routine. I know that will be a challenge, but since I did it for a month, I also know it’s possible for me to do it for the rest of the year!
That’s a win as far as I’m concerned.
