Get Rid of Your Guilt-Monkey and Write!

Today's links are all about getting in the habit of writing.

The first is a group I've belonged to for years! I'm really excited about it re-launching:
Bibliographic Junkies

Every day (or so), a prompt is posted. You write something based on the prompt and post it to the group. People comment on it, and you comment on the postings of others. It is NOT a formal critique group. It's all very casual, very relaxed. This isn't the place to post chapters of your magnum opus. It's just a great place to get into the habit of writing on a regular basis in a fun and creative environment, with lots of wacky folks (like me).

Today's second link is a 90-day challenge to get you in the habit of writing every day:
Author Kelly L. Stone's 90-Day Writing Challenge

Set a reasonable goal for yourself--500 words a day, 1000 words a day; whatever works best for you--and do it every day for 90 days. I like this idea, and I think of it this way: if you can meet that goal every day for ninety days, you should be able to make it every day, forever, right? Minus the occasional sick day and much-needed vacation (hey! I'm not a slave driver, you know), of course.

Check them out and sign up! I'll see you there!
