1K a Day Challenge – Week Fourteen

It’s April 12th, 2015. Week fourteen of writing 1,000 words per day of fiction.

Most of my writing this past week has been in what are called Sprints, a method that one of my writing cohorts swears by, and it’s hard to argue with her results. The concept of a sprint is to write with abandon for 10 solid minutes, then stop. You take a 10 minute break where you do whatever the hell you want, and then you write for another 10 solid minutes. This continues for as long as you can write on a given day.

Most of the time I write 300 to 400 words in a 10 minute sprint. Because I’m focused in smaller bursts, these words are also focused. Maybe they’re not elegant, but they’re usable. They’re viable. I can make them work for me. Sprints are a great tool if you can adhere to them and protect your 10 minute writes.

Let’s get on with it, eh?

Days 95 through 101 have been successes, with a minimum of 1,000 words per day written.
