Writing can be a chore. Maybe you’re working on a difficult chapter, or you’re so annoyed with some of the characters you just want to strangle them, or maybe you’re a bit under the weather but you still want to do some writing that day. My suggestion is to have a fun project. This is just something you can do for a day or two as a break from your more serious project. These could be anything from “The Continuing Adventures of Queasy-Man,” or maybe you try to write a sentence where every word begins with the same letter.
Now some people – for one reason or another – feel that all their writing activity needs to build to a story or a book that they can sell. At first, they may feel that a day not working on their big project is a day wasted, but these fun projects can easily be turned into blog posts, or bonuses for people who preorder your book, or even an ebook you could publish under a pen name. Or they could just be used as a writing exercise to spark or explore new ideas. A fun fact about writing is that putting words to page or screen is writing.
