A writer’s trick for keeping words flowing is to do timed writing practice every single day. Doesn’t matter what you write, and doesn’t matter how many words. Just pick a time and start writing. Say, 15 minutes, and set a timer, and write constantly for those 15 minutes.
This is an established practice that’s been around since the 60’s. But here’s a new twist on it.
Go to FutureMe.org and set up an account. It’s free.
This is a place where you write letters to yourself to be delivered to you in the future (up to 50 years in the future).
Every day go there and do a timed writing exercise and set it to be emailed to you one year in the future. Or longer. Or shorter. Whatever you want.
But it would be so cool to read all the random stuff that was in your mind a year ago today. Who knows what will turn up? What it will inspire? What forgotten thing it will remind you of?
Make sure you click their Google Ads everyday so that they can afford to send you the email a year from now!
I’m starting today.
