Welcome to Day 66...And Day 1 of our Writing Challenge.
Okay just a reminder how all this works...
Commit to writing on EVERY odd day (I'm doing 750-1500 words) and on EVERY even day, edit those scene/paragraphs (I'm in for 1.5-2 hrs) with the goal of uploading those finished sections into your final draft.
The endgame? For me it's to have my book ready to go to the editors by the second week in November.
So got in 1134 words today.
And...I actually did the exercise routine, I posted yesterday. A bit of a disclaimer...I did all the exercises - I just did half the amount.
So here's a helpful writing tip...
If you're having trouble getting started with your writing and you find yourself staring at a blank page...find a book by one of your favorite authors and hand write out a scene. Then do it again. I know a copywriter who used this technique. He wrote out the copy of other successful copywriters for 30 straight days, he used it to build writing muscle memory for pace, scene structure, hooks, headlines etc. Flash forward ten years...the guy is a hugely successful copywriter. You can use the same technique for your own writing.
