After reading someone else's blog, my apolgies for not remembering who, I've decided to give myself a minimum number of words to write each and every day.

I think I'll start with 100 words of prose, or 10 lines of poetry. I'm sure the numbers match with the blog I read earlier this morning, but what does it matter as long as it helps me get back into the swing of writing again.

I'm also planning on signing myself up for the next Poetry Write Off. Looks like I'll be competing against Kitten Courna, Enforced Bliss, and someone else I cannot recall. That'll likely be this weekend. I'll just get someone else to give me a topic.

With all of that said, I'll close this out and see what ten lines of poetry look like after almost 30 days on non-writing.

Hasta iguana~

word counts
I think you'll find that the word count really helps you get back into writing. I started with 500 words a day and it really did wonders for me. You might wanna set your minimum a bit higher since 100 words isn't much to work with.

Oh, and the write off sounds like it'll be hella exciting! If you need someone to pick a good topic, I'd be more than happy to give ya a hand, just let me know. =D

Something we should all do
A minimum daily word count. Yep. It's something we should all be doing as writers (or aspiring writers - delete as applicable ;)). I'll be the first to admit I have no self discipline in this sort of thing, but I know it's something I should be doing.

All the best keeping to your targets Bart, and well done Raven - keep it up! :)

Now all I have to do is motivate myself to do the same... :-}
