#Writemotivation Month Around the Bend

#Writemotivation is just around the corner and I'm very excited about it. But Jacob, you say, what's with the hash tag and no space between the words? Well, it's something used on twitter where fellow writers cheer each other in writing. Because, you know, everyone needs encouragement. I mean really, name a writer that doesn't feel doubt and question the entire purpose of even writing the story altogether? #Writemotivation is a great way to help elevate that pesky doubter residing within.

KT Hanna is the one to put this into action. On January, she started up the first #writemotivation campaign where participants came up with doable goals and worked towards achieving them. This campaign is by no means a race, but rather a method of holding yourself accountable to the goals you say you'll do, and put that damned procrastinator in its place.

Go to this post at KT Hanna's blog and learn about signing up. I promise you, it won't be something you'll regret. Take action and get some goals done, there will even be rewards if you achieve your own goals. And who doesn't want to be more productive in writing? With work, school, kids, and life getting in the way of what you want to do most, wouldn't it make sense to get set some goals set for accomplishment?

#Writemotivation to all!
