Writer’s Boot Camp: Day 1

For those of you who haven’t read the previous post, I’m beginning a 30-day writer’s boot camp. Each day for the next 30 days will have some form of writing from me regarding this boot camp. I’m a little nervous, but I’m putting myself out there anyway.

Day 1: My Dream Writing Life

The directions for this day say that a supposed to describe my dream writing life.

My dream writing life is being able to work anywhere, but I picture myself at a Starbucks with a notebook and computer in front of me. I’m sipping on an iced chai tea latte and pondering how best to write the next sentence. The writing flows smoothly, there’s no hesitation, and I have many breakthroughs.

I have two successful blogs, one for health and the other for education, both of which I’m able to make money from. I have two young adult novels another my belt. The third is a trilogy based on vampires. No Twilight, I promise.

Writing

It’s Been Too Long

It’s been a long time since I’ve published anything to this blog. I recently purchased a couple of books to get me back into writing: Writer’s Boot Camp by Rachel Federman (which I can’t seem to find online anymore) and Complete the Story¬†which you can find at Barnes and Noble. The goal is to immerse myself in writing for the next 30 days and post it here.

I’m a little worried about this because we have 17 more days left a school which means that I’m going to be really busy trying to get papers graded and fit in any curriculum that needs to be completed. Waiting for summer is a viable option, but I was hoping to be writing in full force before summer came so I could use summer vacation effectively. It would also be a shame to wait for summer, work a writing regimen into my schedule, then have to create a new regimen all over again when school starts back up in September. It may be tough now, but it will be worth it if I can pull it off.

I will be posting for the next 30 days as part of this boot camp. If I miss a single day, I’m not reaching my goal. Wish me luck.
