Writing and stress has been worse this year than ever before. Mostly because we have this Covid fiasco hanging over our heads day in and day out. I miss so many things like hugging, smiling at people in the grocery store (but not in a weird way,) going out to dinner, normal stuff we took for granted.
Now back to writing... how to kick start the old writing muscle?
Find a challenge. Yes, there are still ways to find a challenge and meet it even in this crazy land we're living in.
I challenged my daughter, also a writer, to exchange chapters each week. So every Monday we send each other the chapter we finished that week. And yes! We are challenged to finish a chapter each week. We meet or facetime later in the week to discuss what we've read/edited.
It's time to step up and inspire yourself. Find someone to challenge you. Make you produce a chapter a week and get that book written.
