Goal - Wednesday Writings - Help me out

OK, yes, I realize today is Friday. But I'm making this post as a way of setting up some accountability for myself ahead of time.

My personal goals for this year included goals to: read scriptures daily, get a regular exercise regime going, write in my journal weekly, attend the temple monthly, read 50 novels, and get a WEEKLY CREATIVE WRITING cadence going (with some story/novel/edit/revision goals tied to it).

The scripture reading and temple attendance are going well so far. I've exercised, but not enough to call it a 'regime', so I've got to work on that. I've only written in my journal once so far.

But the one I haven't done ANYTHING with so far, is my Creative Writing goal.

So…I'm putting this out to the world for accountability.

At the very least, I will do some creative writing every Tuesday or Wednesday and as proof to myself and others, I will post that writing to my blog in the form of a "Wednesday Writings" post. Depending on the scale of the writing I actually do, it may be the entire piece or may just be an excerpt. In either case, I'm hoping that YOU will help me stay accountable….How, you ask? If Thursday rolls around and you don't see any Writing from me…hit me up with a message calling me a slacker or some other encouraging epithet.

At the very least, this practice should get my writing juices flowing again. At the best, it will potentially produce some fun and interesting writing.

As always, I appreciate comments and criticism.

Thanks for your help.

This is a great idea! I would like to do it too, but not right now : ( Too much going on so this is not my year for writing. I did come across a website once that had 365 different topics for creative writing. Good luck and I look forward to reading your posts!

I can't wait to see how this works out for you. I need to work on something like this for myself!

(See how I'm holding you accountable? You asked for it!)

Thanks to all of you for your encouragement. And thanks Phoenix for the reminder and keeping me accountable. The post is coming. Hopefully it's "something good." Let me know. :)
