Writing inspiration and March goals :)

What is your story??

How many times a day does your brain tell you that “you should be writing” vs doing whatever else your doing? Mine tends to whisper sweet nothings in my ear around 4am and then again at 7am…noon…8pm… oh and of course while I’m about to fall asleep (you know that voice) the one who figures out all the plot holes or  a way the story could move forward just when your comfortable and almost fully asleep. πŸ˜’πŸ™ƒ

I personally feel I have plot foxes 🦊 vs bunnies 🐰 due to their sneaky habits and bad timing for showing up. 

 But why do they feel so compelled to speak?

What is the reason behind those little voices telling you that you must write? 

What is your story?

Whatever reason you had for first sitting down and taking pen to paper, you need to find that again and hold tight to that feeling. Your the only one who can tell a story with your unique point of view, no one else can do it for you. 

So Write! 

I keep a pad of paper on me at all times (or a post it pad) so that I can jot down a few notes whenever they come to me. 😏being smarter than the plot foxes πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

I always carry a notebook in my bag too,for the times I actually have a break and can sit with full focus. 

That way, even if I’m really busy I can listen to my little voices. 🦊

However, I do tend to have more notes than completed chapters. So that brings me to my March Writing Goals 😊

This month I’m giving myself a deadline of 15,000 words, written in complete sentences.  Which is a simple goal of 500 words a day.

I’m giving myself the 31st to polish my final work, so if you noticed my numbers didn’t add up, that’s why ☺️

Every evening I’ll post my daily word count, to keep myself accountable. Like we all did for NaNoWriMo.

I will be posting on my Instagram account which can be found here My Instagram

And it will carry over to my Facebook page as well, My Facebook

So if your active on either one of those be sure to follow me and feel free to join me this month! I’d love the compmany!

Just comment or message me and let me know your in 😊

The next Novel and NaNoWriMo!Β 

Bella lounging per usual 

Seems anytime I’m working I find her snoozing. Oh, to live the life of a dog sometimes πŸ™‚

November is coming up so much quicker than I had expected, so many deadlines coming due soon and NaNoWriMo starts in just 11 days! I must say I’m beyond excited to participate this year, I’ve  been tinkering with my next novel for some time now and I think nanowrimo is just the boost and writing frenzy I need to get it completed. πŸ’»πŸ™ŒπŸΌ if you’ll be joining in the fun be sure to let me know! I’d love to meet some fellow writers 😊 my username on NaNo is Jen_Onedge 

Which means these next few days are all about planning and time managing.  (In other words To-Do lists! πŸ€“πŸ˜Š)

Along with being part of National Novel Writing Month, I will be throwing my pen in with a fantasy Short story contest as well.    Be sure to check it out and give it a go.  As a writer you should always be up for critiques, contests are the best way to work your craft and better your skills.
