The Sweetie Chronicles

Yay! This is officially my 500th Sweetie Chronicles post!

I started writing this blog a few years ago as an exercise in just waking up and getting something down every day. At first, it was hard to stick with it. Now, it's more of a habit, and even though I don't always write about interesting things, I almost always WRITE. It's a good way to start my day.

That being said, I think it's time to add another habit to the mix. Now that I've gotten used to writing every morning on a random topic, it's time to start working every day to write pages in my actual NOVEL. A local author, Jenna Black, said to me at Saturday's romance writer's meeting, "You'd be surprised how fast you would finish a novel if you just sat down and wrote every single day." Seeing how she has written more than 20 novels, I'm bound to believe her.

So, in honor of this my 500th post, and my proven ability to get up (almost) every morning and write a short blog post, I vow to write at least one page in my novel every day. If I can cultivate that as a die-hard habit, I know I will be in good shape. At the very least, I would finish a novel a year in rough draft, but I know that I'll write a lot more than one page most days. Sitting down and getting started is the hard part. Once I'm sitting down and the words are flowing, one page will come easy - and then another and another.
