The 100 Club for Writers

I am a member of RWA, Romance Writers of America. I have been a member for a few years. No, I don't write romance books. Though my stories do have romance elements to them.

The other day I had to wait with DH for his yearly check up. So I brought my latest issue of the monthly magazine for RWA. One of the articles was called:  Plan And Prepare For Success. The article mentioned retreats for your writing, but the 100 Club was new to me. It means  you write 100 words for your story everyday.

100 words sounds like a lot, but it really isn't.

While on the road I didn't write a word. I find hotel and motel rooms just are too noisy and uncomfortable to write, to think. I like to work in my studio and have a play-list going while I write.

Now that I have been home a week and have not typed one word. I decided to join the 100 Club. I am on day 4. Surprise, on all 4 days I wrote more than 100 words on my book. I am waiting on the editing on book 3 so I am planning out the next book.

I hope to keep this going, 365 days of 100 words or more.
