Some days a writer just needs a little help to get herself motivated to write. For me writing is harder than blogging. Almost as hard as essay writing was for me in highschool...but not quite that bad. ;)
So I thought a little reward to entice and encourage me through my writing days and on the days I don't perhaps feel like writing might be of help.
These are two of my favorite candies! I picked them up when we were at Walmart last week.
I can have 1 junior mint after one day of writing *at least* 100 words (which at times has actually been a little difficult though really it's only a small paragraph). Since it's only one little mint it will both keep me from over-eating while I write and not put on too many pounds afterward.
When I finish an entire chapter as well as I can for the first draft I get a nice minty 3 Musketeers bar! I'm happy to say the Lord helped me accomplish my goal of writing chapter 1 in January a few days ago! *PRAISE THE LORD!* It's not even close to where I want it to be in the end, but it's as far as I can get without editing (a "no-no" to do on your first run-through, I've learned from my writing friends).
My writing days are a bit easier now with a sweet reward...and I'm so happy to be moving on to a new chapter.
