Each week I work and fit writing in where I can. Usually I find time at my lunch break. Wednesday night is by far my favorite. A couple of years ago I followed the example of a presenter at the Surrey International Writers Conference. That year I was lucky enough to sit down for a blue pencil with Jane Espenson.
A blue pencil, at this writers’ conference, is when you take three pages of one of your novels and ask for input. At that time, I only had one, so each conference I would take three different pages. After I sat down with this gracious lady and received suggestions, I started following her on Twitter, where she does writing sprints.
I started challenging my friends on Facebook to dedicate an hour to writing. One of my friends @Katie Christensen asked if it had to be writing. With this question @The Creative Hour was born.
Now every Wednesday evening from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. I time for @The Creative Hour. Since starting I have also included timing on Twitter. Will you join me?
It’s getting close to start time this Wednesday. Tonight I’ll work on my second book. I need to write the pages that I’ll take to my critique group on Sunday.
