First, why on earth would you want to let others into your writing world? Isn’t writing something you do alone?
Sure, the act of putting words on paper is usually a solitary activity. But the journey doesn’t have to be.
Scratch that: shouldn’t be.
The whole point, ultimately, of writing a book is for others to read and enjoy it, right? Well, the path to get there shouldn’t be any different. Getting involved in a community of like-minded (and determined) writers can do wonders for your motivation and morale.
But it’s more than just a sense of community and support—you, too, have a lot of influence on other writers, whether you know it or not. Even writers who are slightly behind you in their writing journeys will look to you—Someone Who Has Gone Before—for inspiration and direction.
What’s the simplest way to foster this upward spiral of positivity? A Success Journal.
A Success Journal is a powerful way to announce your victories and share your triumphs, even the little ones. When you write down all of your small “wins” throughout the day, you’ll begin to focus on what’s going right in your life.
Wrote 100 words today? That’s a success! Finished a chapter? That’s an incredible milestone. Got some ideas flowing while you were out on a stroll? Write that down, because every breakthrough is important.
Fortunately, I’m making it very easy for you to get started.
