Day Nine:

You have been possessed by the devil! How do you deal with this and how do you make every effort to keep your soul possible? Feel free to go in a different direction from other possession movies.

 

Day Ten:

A friend of yours has had an ancient curse levied upon him. What do you do to help and what happens to him throughout the curse?

 

Day Eleven:

There are several evil spirits that have taken over your house and part of your neighborhood’s block. How do you appease the spirits or get rid of them?

This is a question that has come up a lot in my writing group and from other people — how do you write when you aren’t feeling well? How do you keep up consistency when you feel like going to bed and not waking up for a week.

I think in this instance, we have to look back to a few things that I’ve highlighted before. I don’t set one daily goal for myself, I have two. I have a minimum goal and a stretch goal. When you’re sick, you really, really don’t have to aim for more than that minimum goal. You set it low on purpose, as something that you know you can accomplish, even if you only have 10-15 minutes a day to get words in. It might suck to write while you’re sick, but it will suck even worse to fall off for a week and have to start all over again building up your writing habit.

So… my advice is to get yourself a cup of hot chocolate, or a sprite, or whatever makes you feel better… cuddle in your covers… and just get to writing. It might be hard, it might suck, but just struggle through to that minimum count. A few tips? Write on your phone — most smartphones have writing programs that you can access now. Another tip? Don’t put it off! I’ve noticed that I feel worse as the day goes on; get it done when you wake up and you have the most energy.

And finally, the most important tip? Don’t be hard on yourself. If you hit that 250 word minimum goal you set (which is the minimum goal I suggest for a lot of people because that’s equivalent to a page <3) just stop if you feel like it. You take care of you ❤

SIDENOTE: If you are EXTREMELY ILL (like, you need to go to the hospital, you can’t lift your arms, what are you even doing reading a blog?) just go to sleep, you ninny. xD

I thought we’d do something a little fun today. ❤ If you’re really bad with picture prompts and you don’t feel like you can do this, just make sure that you write a story that involves SHARKS! ❤ I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

Oh, hey. I bet this is gonna sound familiar xD SOOOO, if you guys haven’t noticed, I’ve been a little MIA lately. >_>

42124224_10215835512494556_9053650580177682432_nWotwot? Is that another little baby McCormick that we’re seeing here? Was I inconsistently posting for about 12 weeks because I was struggling with morning sickness for my entire first trimester xD

Yeah, yeah, that seems to be exactly what was going on. That’s right, y’all ❤ I’m gonna have another little baby!

Anyway, I just thought I’d let you guys know xD I should be back more consistently now — I’m 14 weeks, and feeling muuuuuuuch better about how things are going, as far as barfing every day. Now I just want sammiches constantly xD

I’ll be posting up the next step to my blog challenge very soon! Thank you so much for everyone who is sticking with me even when I disappear sometimes.

A few things to look forward to: 31 Horror Prompts for Halloween! And NANOWRIMO! whoot! Until then, y’all!

Hey all! I’m going to try to shift things up again today. We’ve done prompts, and we’ve done some self-reflection. This time, I want us to do something a bit different.

Make a schedule for yourself for the week. So, Monday-Sunday. Slot out writing time, and put how many words you want to write in the day. By making this and posting it, you’re going to commit to the words that you’re saying you’ll write. More than that, making a schedule is actually a very good practice. You can be as detailed or as non-detailed as you want. You can include the other things you have to do, you can include your down time/reward time that you plan on giving yourself. You can include what project(s) you’re working on. Just make the schedule! And then, at the end of the week, we’re going to write a progress report on how we all did for our schedules! I think it’s going to be a great exercise in making goals and keeping them!

All right then, let’s get to it!

Here we are, once again! It’s time for Ego’s blog challenge! This time, we’re going to mix it up a bit again. I’m not going to ask you to write a short story. Instead, I want you to take a few minutes and think… write a blog about what your goals are! Why do you have a blog? What do you want to accomplish with it. Further than that, why do you write? Where would you like to see yourself as a writer 5 years from now, 10 years from now… really reflect on what you want to do, and get it down into words. Making a statement that other people can see is like making a commitment.

I want us all to commit to our dreams and ambitions — that way, we can keep each other on track.

I can’t wait to see what you guys say and come up with <3!

Oh, is it that time again? I think so! It’s time for another Blog Challenge! I wanted to switch this one up a bit again… so, instead of me giving you a writing prompt, I want you to make a list. Write down the last five things that you can remember dreaming about. After you’ve done that, use at least three elements from those dreams to make a short story! Doing this, you’re going to kind of delve into your own mind to write a story and practice what a lot of writers do to create new worlds!

(For those of you who will say: I can’t remember my dreams. I don’t dream. I don’t want to do this. Blah. Fine. https://wordcounter.net/random-word-generator Pick five words here and carry on as instructed.)

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

So, let’s get to it, shall we?
