Sometimes the words flow freely. On those days I write.
Sometimes, I struggle to find any words at all. I write on those days, too.
Writing is a solitary task, but with the 30/30 challenge, I feel like I’m part of something bigger—a team of other writers who know that the journey is made up of many little steps. Whether it was easy or not, I added to my novel every day last October. I never wrote a lot of pages in those thirty-minute sittings, but after thirty days, the pages added up. I kept up my discipline after the Challenge ended, and by early December, I had completed the first draft of my novel. This year, the 30/30 Challenge motivates me again. New novel, new demands. But knowing there’s a group of other writers working along with me keeps me going.
Read an excerpt from Bacon’s novel, which she wrote during last year’s 30/30.
