I love this time of year. The twinkle lights. The egg nog. The holiday movies I wrap myself in like a cozy blanket. But my biggest joy is announcing 31 Days of Writing Inspiration, my annual daily dose of motivation and encouragement to help you fill your writing tank throughout the month of January. It’s something I look forward to every year, and based on the messages I receive, I think many of you do, too.
Each January for the past five (!) years, I have put together a little package of inspirations to help you stay connected to your writing process and reinforce your commitment to your projects. These inspirations will encourage you to approach your writing with curiosity, joy, and FUN. And don’t we all need more fun in our writing?
WHAT IS 31 DAYS OF WRITING INSPIRATION?
31 Days of Writing Inspiration is a gentle, friendly reminder of your commitment to your writing practice right in your inbox. I designed it to deliver meaningful bite-size boosts to help you stay on track. It’s become an annual tradition!
Every day throughout January, you’ll receive a message from me. At the end of each email, you’ll find links to the messages that came before. If you miss one, or want to revisit one of your favorites, this list makes it easy to go back.
This program is designed to connect you to your creativity on a deep, personal level. I don’t believe that inspiration strikes like a lightning bolt and suddenly—poof!—you’re in the flow. Nor is it a muse who bestows her gifts of inspiration on some and leaves others to founder. Inspiration is simply connection. It’s connection through:
- Paying attention to the ordinary and extraordinary
- Cultivating curiosity
- Allowing space
Join me…it’s free!
Most of us need a little jump-start in January! The busy holiday season has separated us from the joy of writing. Let these inspirations lay the foundation for a solid writing practice in the new year.
Each day will have a different inspiration. Sometimes a quote; sometimes a link to an encouraging video; sometimes a short writing exploration; sometimes a short note to bolster your connections to the world around you.
You deserve the gift of discovering (or rediscovering) the magic of writing. You deserve to dive into your story with curiosity and excitement. You deserve to feel the spark of a new idea and write with abandon. You deserve a daily, gentle acknowledgment of your work.
Q: When do I receive my first inspiration? January 1. Or if you sign up after January 1, the next day. if you join sometime in January, you’ll find links to all previous messages in that first email.
Q: How much is this program? It is FREE. Really.
