Down to the Wire Wednesday

Today, I’m writing this blog post and it’s down to the wire. The short amount of time I gave myself to get some words in gave me an idea for your prompt. We’re going to write fast and raw without editing.

It’s time to sit our butts in our chairs and let our fingers fly across the page without worrying about being brilliant. Sometimes great writing is about being real, not wordy. In order to get to that space where you can sit down and write without hesitation, you need to practice.

How many of us sat down to write only to get back up because we needed something to drink. Then, we needed a snack or to check on something. You know what I’m talking about. Sometimes, we do anything else except write.

So, let those pens fly today. Write for 5 minutes and write as if you’re in a hurry. Don’t worry about the right kind of sentence. Just let your thoughts out.

For me, I’m thinking of a scene from a show that caught my eye last night while I was making miniatures. The scene was of 3 men meeting to celebrate on a rooftop. You can use the same scene if you’re feeling hesitant.

My posts are Monday to 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.
