I know I’ve been awfully irregular with my blogging for over a year now and it is driving me nuts. Despite my best efforts over the past few weeks, I did get a bit more writing done, but got stuck on the most ridiculous details (seriously, my fiddling with a voice for the new narrator I’ll introduce in this week’s chapter of Strings of Retaliation was just silly inner-editor bull-manure.)
I’m about as sick of not writing as I was when I first started this blog (which I started to force myself to write steadily.)
But I have a goal now. I had an awesome time and connected with great people at SiWC last year. I want to attend the conference again. But I won’t go there only to say I haven’t written anything this year. It doesn’t feel right. So I’ve made finishing The Phoenix’s Wake by the end of September a condition to my going to SiWC. I’ve recruited friends to hold me accountable to.
And that, my friends and loyal readers, is why I’ll be around a lot more and why today’s writing prompt is what it is! 😉
Remember how drabble day works?
- Read the prompt and find your angle.
- Write a drabble (100 words story, give or take five words).
- Post a direct link to your drabble in the comments (or, if you don’t have a blog, just go ahead and post your drabble in the comments).
- In the post on your blog, make sure to link back to this post so other people can join the fun!
- You can also use the #DrabbleDay hashtag on Twitter to find each other easily!
Today’s prompt is: Goal!
My drabble will be up on Wednesday.
Awesome writerly week to all of you! And if you catch me complaining about falling behind on my writing objective, feel free to tell me to shut up and write. 😉
