#LeapAheadWritingMarathon Day 22: Monday Motivation with Author Chuck Wendig

Monday, February 22, 2016

Leap Ahead Marathon LogoObviously, I fell off the marathon “path” at the end of last week—not only did I not get any new blog posts up, I didn’t get any writing done between Tuesday and Sunday of last week. But thanks to good friend and regular blog reader Carol Collett, I got back on my feet and running with a 1k1h sprint last night, in which I added 1,470 words—and wrote a fun scene, a piece of which I shared on my Facebook page afterward. My goal for this week is to do at least one 1k1h sprint every day (or the ones that my grad-school group does—which is a series of three or four 25-minute sprints over a two-hour block), with the goal of adding at least 1,000 words per day to the story.

Today’s motivational video is a fun quick-take from the Papercuts channel on YouTube with author Chuck Wendig, best known recently for his Star Wars novel Aftermath, talking about his “myth lab.”

Where’s your “myth lab” and how much time have you spent there recently?
