Call To Write

Because I edit fiction for a living, writing first drafts (or first-drafting) can be difficult. First-drafting is when you stifle your inner editor and just write your scene(s). It doesn’t have to be interesting, pretty, or even comprehensible. Just get it out so you have something to expand and edit later.

Think what you want about NaNoWriMo (I know I will), but one thing participants do that seems to help me stop talking about writing and actually do it is a writing sprint. Set a time limit (I usually do 15 minutes), and refuse all distractions so you can write. Just spill it all onto the page!

I’d like to host a sprint challenge here: Open a comment, post your starting time, and WRITE for 15 minutes. Post your ending time and submit! The best “entry” will be featured with links to the author’s blog or online portfolio. Good luck!

What do you think of writing sprints, or NaNoWriMo? Post a comment below!
