2021 #ReVISIONweek Tune-Up Day #2: A Dash of Inspiration, a Sprinkle of Motivation, and Prize Winners!

Happy Monday! If you are feeling anything like I’m feeling today, you’re longing to jump into writing for the week, and struggling to actually take the plunge. I thought I’d share my Monday action plan in case it is helpful to you:

  1. Write this blog post to warm up my fingers and brain.
  2. Read one mentor text.
  3. Critique one manuscript.
  4. Work out and watch Night Shift. Analyze the way they develop characters while I watch. πŸ™‚
  5. Shower. Ponder plots and characters while I shower. πŸ™‚
  6. Flip my sand-timer over and dive into outlining for my adult novel for 60 minutes.
  7. Critique one manuscript.
  8. Flip my sand-timer over and research a new PB idea for 60 minutes.
  9. And if I can squeeze it in, flip my sand-timer over and work on revisions on a PB for 30 minutes.

I didn’t mention the crunchy snacks I will probably consume throughout the day, but eating, thinking, and writing go hand in hand, right?

I also didn’t mention my definition of success:

If I can work out, critique one manuscript, read one mentor text, and work on one manuscript today, I am going to consider that a HUGE success. If I accomplish this whole plan, well then, CAKE for all!

I hope this action plan helps motivate you! Pick two or three things you want to accomplish today or this week and then dive in! In the words of Charlie, “You’ve got this!”
