#FirstDraft120 Day 47: It’s THORsday Thursday! #amwriting #handwriting #1k1hr

Thursday, November 17, 2016

How is your challenge going? Have you hit a stumbling block? Have you found it easier to write since we extended the deadline? What’s up? 😉

On Thursdays, we do an alternate version of Timer Tuesday—instead of challenging ourselves to sit at the computer and try to crank out as many words as fast as we can, the challenge is to get away from the computer.

fd120-thorsdayWhat Does THORsday Mean?
It’s pretty simple. Our writing challenge for today is:
Timed
Handwritten
Offline
Remote

What that means is that for the length of time you designate (half an hour, 45 minutes, an hour, etc.), you will write by hand (on actual paper). You will turn off all of your Internet-connected devices (or put them away/get away from them). And you will find a remote spot in which to work—in other words, don’t do this at the same place where you usually write. Go into a different room. Go outside. If you can, get out of the house and go work somewhere else, like your public library or a coffee shop.

Otherwise, try to follow all of the same tips that we use for regular 1k1hr writing sprints. (Refresher here.)

Assignment: Leave a comment with your THORsday goal—when, where, and for how long do you plan to do your handwritten challenge today?

    Today I journaled for a bit. I plan to work on my story for a bit later tonight. Sometimes journaling helps get my writing going.

    I didn’t get anywhere this Thursday for the remote bit…I’m finding it’s harder to write on paper because my toddler pesters me and I can’t ‘get away’ to even try writing in another room because of her…so didn’t get much writing done unfortunately. 🙂
