One of my stories, Peeping Toe, ( published before, and read out,) has been included on the Birkbeck Writer’s Hub, which is associated with the Birkbeck Writing program in the UK. Give it a like or a comment if the story appeals to you :).
Now for #Writemotivation : Author friend and blog + twitter pal K T Hanna runs a twitter hashtag for writers, the #writemotivation , where writers sign up and cheer each other on to their respective goals.
- Make a list of realistic goals for the month – and achieve them.
a Blog Post every week (preferably Monday, but if you don’t post on
Mondays just add it to the next day you would normally post ).
This is to help us keep tabs on our own progress, and for others to
cheer us on if it’s a difficult week. Please link to the post in the
- Visit your #writemotivation teammates’ blogs, and participate in the #writemotivation hashtag on twitter to cheer people on.
You may not have met your goals completely, but I'd say you've done a damn good job of coming close *hugs*
And really, that's a good thing. Keep at it and you'll hit them. Also. Have cookies <3
You're doing well. I like the idea of #writemotivation. I've joined groups and posted goals, and feel motivated doing so.
Thanks. I'm liking #writemotivation too.
I usually start off strong at the beginning of the month with goals, but my life tends to get in the way.
Melanie, which is why I'm now setting weekly goals, and breaking it down to daily goals.
Well done with your, "Peeping Toe." My writing goals and my human's writing goals are nothing like yours. Good for you to try and maintain your hopes. We'd much rather do our own thing at our own pace. Makes for relaxed, non-pressure writing.

Oh, thanks so much for the pawsitive wishes. Looking fwd to your satirical guest post!
Thanks for enlightening us! 🙂
Love the snaps on your blog.
After a weekend of fun with my kiddo, my main goal for today was to just make it. However, I have writing hope for tomorrow 🙂
Looks like you've done in working towards your goal so good on you!
Angela, you are a prolific writer, so there's nothing to worry about!
You're trying and even if you're falling a little short of your goals, you have made progress. That's worth celebrating.
Thanks. yes, any progress is still progress.
Congrats on the story! It sounds like you're doing pretty well. My goal is to finish my WIP novella by the end of the week. It's been "nearly" finished for a long time, and life has taken me away from it, but this time I'm really hoping to nail it.
Thanks, Nick. And all the best with your novella.
Keep going. You'll get there. Nothing like setting goals to keep us moving.
Totally agree about setting goals to achieve results.
Anytime one makes goals it's a winner for me. Meeting them is icing on the cake. I make many goals in my head, I think this week I'll write them down. Thanks for the inspiration.
You're welcome, Jenn. Thank KT, who started it all.
You may have fallen just shy of your goals, but think where you'd be if you hadn't set any.
Thanks! yes, 4000 is better than none, I suppose.
My goal- to write every day on book two until it's finished. 🙂
Have a terrific day!
That's a great goal– writing a novel everyday keeps you immersed in its world.
I'm coming round to thinking that posting on my blog once a week is enough. It keeps my writing going if the submissions have stalled but it doesn't put too much of a strain on my followers to keep visiting and commenting. I do think there's a fine line between running a blog and a blog running you.
I know. I have two blogs, and keeping them alive sometimes proves a strain.
Oh, man. Working on my #writemotivation post right now. You did better than I–does that make you feel better? 😀 Congratulations on having your story included in the Birkbeck Writer's Hub!
Thanks, Guilie, and you're doing great with both your novels, as well!
