5th Sunday Check-In - #ROW80

This week I had some really good feedback on one of the stories I wrote last month and it has really spurred me on and given me a little confidence boost. I am also discovering that the more short stories I write, the more ideas I have. In fact, I am struggling to keep up with them and now have quite a big file of fleshed out ideas just waiting for their turn to be written.

The challenge for August is going really well so far and I haven't missed a day yet. It used to take me about 30 minutes to complete, but now it takes me half that. So, even on those days when my brain feels fried and I really don't want to write, I can just tell myself I only need to do 15 minutes and then I can stop and do something else. More often than not, I find that once those 15 minutes are done my brain is warmed up and I actually want to do more.

I am slowly catching up on my reading as well and have read another one and a half books this week.

How about you? How did you get on this week? Let me know in the comments below, I'd love to hear from you. And remember, if you want to visit others in the #ROW80 blog hop you can use the links below.

  1. They say that "the more your write, the more ideas for writing you get". Sounds like you're proving it to yourself...

    I let myself slip on the 750words challenge in July. Didn't use it this month yet... You're inspiring me to try it again. :-D
