Will you accept this challenge?

Write 50 words, that’s a paragraph.
Write 200 words, that’s a page.
(Type 400 words, that’s also a page)
Write 300 pages, that’s a book.
Write every day, that’s a habit.
Edit and rewrite, that’s how you get better.
Spread your writing for people to comment, that’s called feedback.
Don’t worry about rejection or publication, that’s a writer.
When not writing, read.
Read from writers better than you.
Read and perceive.
Remember if you write just one page a day at the end of a year you would have 365 pages…that’s a book!
I want to encourage all of you to write daily.  If you are new to writing set a goal of writing 500 words a day.  Then see how you feel by slowly increasing it.  You will build your writing muscle and soon you will have completed that book you always wanted to write!
