Write By Midnight Pep Talk 3-30-18

It’s the last Friday of the month. We hope you’re pushing forward with the daily writing habit you established in February’s Write by Midnight challenge. Now is the time to assess your writing progress and make your schedule for next month.

Have you come up with your writing goals for April? If not, this weekend is the perfect time to do it.

Let us know how it’s going!

Write By Midnight Starts today

Did the holidays mess up your writing schedule? If so, then it’s time to re-establish that daily writing habit. Our February Write by Midnight challenge is a great way to get moving on your story again. Starting today, make your writing a priority. It doesn’t matter when you write, whether it’s 5 a.m. or 11:30 at night. The clock is ticking, so put some words on the page  by midnight.

Get Ready to Write

It’s not enough to commit to participating in February’s Write by Midnight challenge. Success is more likely if you have a system in place to hold yourself accountable. So spend today figuring out how you’ll do that. Post your Write by Midnight goals here or tweet them using #WriteByMidnight. Maybe try teaming up with a writing partner that you can check in with daily to report your progress. Or, tell someone you see every day about your goals and ask them to keep you honest throughout the month. Identify meaningful rewards for achieving your goals, as well as negative consequences for when you fall short. The key to establishing a habit is consistency, so make that your priority in February.
