We’re Upping our Game!
First, do your 8-minute writing habit with your morning routine today. Make a note of where it fits in—before shower, after shower, before kids wake up, etc. This will come in handy when the challenge is over.
Next, I want you to spend the rest of the day finding little pockets of time in which you can add a bit more to the word counts you already got this morning. It doesn’t have to be much, just a sentence or two during your downtime. You can even count any of your mobile check-ins from the scavenger hunt toward this goal!
What I would love to see is for you to double whatever your word count was for your first 8-minute writing session throughout the rest of the day. So if you wrote 250 words in your session this morning, I want you to find a couple minutes throughout the rest of the day to write at least 250 more words. You can go way beyond that if you want, but for today we’re just trying to double what we produce this morning and keep our momentum going. And we’re trying to do it in our spare time!
When you are done with your 8-minute session, post a pic of yourself, your words, or whatever you want on social media with the hashtags #8minutewritinghabit, #nanowrimotivation, #letyourbookflow, and #amwriting. If you want me to see it, make sure you tag Monica Leonelle too. We are doing this challenge primarily on Twitter, but you can also post on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, and more, so don’t be shy and use whatever social channel you want during this challenge!Don’t forget the NaNoWriMotivation Facebook Group.
