I like to write. But sometimes when I sit down at my keyboard, my mind just draws a blank.
I become immediately discouraged. I start to doubt myself, and it throws me into a funk. There are other times though that the words flow beautifully down the page.
I often find myself in the position of having to write copy for various church websites or for newsletters. Most of the time, when I sit down to write for these specific outlets, I find it difficult to even start.
Do you experience this?
The 750 Words Challenge
I knew that I needed to find something that could keep my butt into gear with writing. Thats when I found 750 Words. Its a very minimalistic site that helps you track your writing. They have challenges each month. If you miss more than one day, you get put on the Wall of Shame. However, if you successfully complete it, you get put on the Wall of Awesomeness. They also have a lot of nifty badges that you can check out here.
I’m taking the May challenge of writing 750 words everyday. I’m confident taking the 750 word challenge will help get my creative juices flowing and allow me to create better content for church publications. Posting this publicly will give me more motivation to actually finish. Let’s do this!
