Milestone Day!

I reviewed my insights page again on WordPress and I’ve officially reached 76,000 total words. My prompting and blogging are the size of a book. I guess this means that I don’t have any excuses when it comes to getting a novel written. It also means that using my exercises work!

Knowing that it’s possible to write a book by breaking things down to one page a day helps me understand that it’s possible. I feel like I’ve come out of a long hibernation of a few years. Do I feel passionate about writing every day? Have you been reading my posts because the answer is no! I just learned to form a habit to get it done. I’ve made up some of the time of no publishing with my journal series, which was also part of my own therapy because I didn’t know if I could get back on track again.

I had to spend the 2 more years proving to myself that I could write again. The veil over the mysterious process was removed. There were several days when it was hard to sit down but I did it. Then, using prompts and exercises to get my pen moving wasn’t so hard. One thought lead to another and I was on track again. I stopped waiting for a creative burst, and learned to make those moments happen when I needed them.

Of course, you can tell the days when I did feel more inspired than others but the days when I wasn’t as passionate were still chunks that I used to build my stories. Then, thoughts like, this is easy I should be able to write a whole novel started to creep into my mind, and that’s how I knew my prompting therapy worked.

Today is a milestone day and I’m going to add it my box! I also wish you the best in your own journey.

My posts are Monday through Friday.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
