March Madness for Writers: Circuit #1

Happy Monday, writers! I hope you all had a wonderful, productive weekend. If you’re participating in the March Madness Writing Challenge, today is day 4, which means you should have a few days of writing under your belt. Have you managed to put in time each day, even if just a little bit? Make it a priority to plant yourself in your favorite writing location and get those words out. And if daily writing alone isn’t enough of a challenge, be sure to check out yesterday’s list of circuit training exercises to help you stretch your skills even more.

For those of you interested in Circuit Training, today is the first Monday of the month, and you should be kicking off your first exercise. Choose any of the listed activities for the week, and keep at it through next Sunday. Feel free to drop by the blog and let us all know how you’re doing!

If you are happy writing daily, or aren’t quite ready to add to the challenge, that’s fine, too. Remember, the circuit training is optional. You can ignore that facet of the challenge entirely, or give it a go later in the month if your schedule allows. But however you choose to personalize the challenge, make sure to keep it a challenge. The point is to push yourself a bit past your current comfort zone, to take your writing skills and habits to the next level. So don’t forget to aim high!

Wishing you all a great week. Happy writing!

  1. I couldn’t write on the 1st and 2nd, but am now 170 words from 4000 words. Yesterday went well. Today, thanks to your circuit, went even better and might have given me a start to a viable YA Historical Fiction.

    Needless to say, I’m pretty dang excited.

    1. Great start! And it sounds like you’re building some excellent momentum. Good luck!

  2. I am enjoying the challenge and writing a LOT. That said, this morning when I re-read my work there was a certain NANOWRIMO-esque quality to my pages.

    Edit. Edit. Edit. LOL.

    Happy Monday!

    1. Ah, well, a first draft is a first draft. Far better than an empty page. Glad you’re enjoying the challenge!
