The Power of Writing Sprints

Updated: Jan 9

I recently started using timed writing sprints again. On my lunch break, I did a twenty-minute sprint and got 697 words. Figure if I can manage this twice more today, I'll have almost 2,100 words in an hour's time.

I like the sprints because they help me focus. During that 20 minutes (or whatever time limit I set), I don't look at social media or the Internet. No distractions equals more words, which leads to having more books completed and available for readers.

Gonna keep going with sprints, as I'd gotten away from them. They can be a powerful tool to keep focused and get more words down. Of course, this is rough copy and I'll go back over it, revising and smoothing it out before the draft goes off for editing.
