#FirstDraft120 Day 100: Monday Momentum–A Literary Agent on PASSION for Writing | #amwriting

Monday, January 9, 2017

fd120-monday-motivationNow that I’m back from my holiday travels and sitting at my own desk with my brand-new laptop all set up and ready to go, it’s time to get back on track for our final push of FirstDraft120! As a reminder, here are the regular “events” during the week:

Monday: Motivation for building momentum
Tuesday: Timer Tuesday (1k1hr sprints/blocks of writing-work time)
Wednesday: Story bible update/new story idea work
Thursday: THORsday–timed, handwritten, offline, remote
Friday: SWAT–Self-evaluation, Word count (or total time), Awesome accomplishments, Tidbits to share

Today’s Motivational Moment to Build Momentum

Today’s motivational moment comes from the Author Learning Center channel on YouTube. It’s part of an interview with literary agent Harvey Klinger in which he talks about what it takes for authors to be successful. And around this blog, “success” means meeting your goals, whether that’s to get published or just to get something (anything) written.

What’s motivating you today? How will you build momentum going into this new week?

    In thinking about this video and the focus of today’s blog, I think this is giving me my theme for 2017: the year for rebuilding passion. I want to become more passionate about writing, reading, volunteering, building new relationships and expanding my social circle, and saving $$ in order to finally travel to Europe as I’ve wanted for at least 30 years.
