Hello friends! Atlast I hear a sigh of relief, elation and a bit of sadness. Let us talk about this fabulous week we had.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I had such a fabulous week writing for the ‘Write Tribe Festival of Words’. It was 7 continuous days of writing based on prompts. There was this whole group of people who became friends during this period. We egged each other on, gave suggestions and did everything to support each other. A bit similar to the April A to Z with fewer number of days.
The difference this time was I had fully loaded workdays. I had not planned any of the posts in advance. Every morning, before I started my work day, I spent an hour on the posts. During the day, I would think about what to write the next day. Armed with a few ideas, I would start my writing hour. And the next one hour, with no distractions at home, I wrote. I kept the phone in another room so that I do not reach for it. I did not go to the internet till my post is complete. I realised that I could do this every day. After the first couple of days, it felt easier to write.
My take away from this ‘Festival of Words” is to focus on a dedicated time to write as against writing when I feel like or writing when I get time. Thank you Corinne. Thank you Write Tribers (or is it Write Tribals?)
P.S. I spent the morning today going over all the comments I received from you in the past seven days. It is an incredible feeling. I could not visit all the posts due to the heavy work schedule. But, I will be visiting you in the coming days.
