Deena and I and our local critique partners are participating in Laurie Halse Anderson's challenge to write for 15 minutes a day. I obviously can't put it better than Laurie Halse Anderson, so here's her blog entry about the challenge: Write Fifteen Minutes a Day Challenge.
I can't tell you how well this is working out for me. It's easy for me to let other types of writing and responsibilities take precedence over my fiction writing. I decided to devote the 15 minutes a day to my sci fi WIP. I've been making it easier on myself by stopping my daily writing in the middle of a sentence, so I know where to pick up the next day. If things are going good, I can write about a page and a half in 15 minutes.
Who knows? At this rate, I might finish this novel in 15 minutes a day!
