motivationThat sound you just heard was me heaving a big ole sigh… I don’t know about the rest of you but it’s been a rainy week and my motivation just isn’t there. We need the rain so I’m not complaining but I’d like a little sunshine. I love sitting outside on the deck in the sun working. Maybe it’s because I published my first book and this is a normal lull. But I know I got sidetracked with  my writing and then some personal stuff came up and now I haven’t written a word in two weeks – uh oh.

Pulls up big girl panties

So, I’m participating in 2 writing challenges. One starts Saturday and goes until next Friday. My writer’s group – Heart of Carolina Romance Writers – does it every month. You post a goal and then every day post your word count.

The second challenge is through an online writer’s loop and an author there is doing a 60K in 30 day challenge – on Facebook and I’m in.motivation (2)

I don’t know about the rest of you but public shame, ahem, accountability helps motivate me. I’m competitive so I like seeing how my word count stacks up against others – in a friendly way  – grins

What do you do to regain your motivation?

I’ll be posting my progress so check in with me to share your words of encouragement and/or tough love.
