Writing sprints are so motivational!

What I really should say is, “my writer friends are so motivational,” because they just introduced me to this thing called writing sprints.

What is a writing sprint?

A writing sprint is when we writers sit down as a pair or group for a set amount of time and just bang out the writing togehter. At the end of the time period, we post our word count. It’s fun!

For example, someone posts in a Facebook group, “Anyone want to sprint?” I say yes. We agree to start at a certain time, for a certain span of time. For my first sprint, we started right then. Twenty minutes later, we each had about 350 words.

It was an easy get-off-your-ass-and-write move!
