My 500 Words

Today I am starting to write 500 words every day, for 31 days straight. If it was good enough for Hemingway, it’s good enough for me, right?

I don’t know what I will achieve by this, but I do know that it is a necessary thing. I need to be writing. That’s simple enough, isn’t it? What else am I meant to be doing with my life, if not writing? Yes, I have work & the evening classes I’m doing, but it’s all too easy to get sucked away into the humdrum of existence and forget to look at the bigger picture.

Do the words need to all be apart of a larger, structured piece of work? No. I debated it, but that would be way too stressful. If they become part of something larger, then, all the better.

I am doing this with the help of a Facebook group called 1k A Day, and the #My500Words initiative set up by Jeff Goins (and these little guys!).
