Yesterday, I wrote about how I have decided to start a 28-hour reactivation course for my real estate license so I don't permanently lose it now that our economy has changed so much. I have until March to comply.
But I worried how my writing would suffer as I tackle my way through the online modules. Well, with a little encouragement from a friend (Angie) I managed to write almost two thousand words in the hour between my lunch and some errands.
Imagine what we can accomplish with only a little encouragement from each other--whether online or in person!
Of course I think there were some veiled threats that I might get a visit of sorts should I not write . . . but seriously, knowing that someone set a specific goal for me did play in the back of my head as I went about my day. I usually set my own goals but in this case felt my goal was not to write but to plow through this project so I could return to do what I liked most--writing.
I discovered yesterday that despite those projects that creep into my life--I can write if I set my mind and time to it without waiting for the perfect mood or environment.
Is there a writer you can encourage this weekend or next week? I'd love to hear how you did and what the results were!
