Self-Published Novel: Writing Accountability = #WORDMONGERING

I've been a dead beat for awhile on my novel. Poor, CANCELLED. But, I've recently found a new accountability program for the dead beat writer: #wordmongering. Yep. Put that hashtag into Twitter and you'll find us. A group of writers who start at the top of the hour, write for 30 minutes, then take a break for 30 minutes.

At first I thought this would be very inefficient. But it's not! My first round of 30 minutes I managed exactly 1,000 words. My second round? 1,172. Two thirds of Chapter 12 done.

So now I'm eating some ice cream and watching a NUMB3RS. Suddenly, my deadline of Tuesday for my first draft isn't so ominous...:)

In other news, information is off to my cover artist. Can't wait to show some results from the wonderful Melissa Oyler!

  1. Hi! Just found your blog through Twitter. I completely agree with you; #wordmongering is a fantastic tool. I recommend #editmongering as well for editing purposes. :)
