Happy Motivation Monday, everyone! It's a special one, too, because this week I have a guest blogger! Amber LaShell at Amber LaShell Rants. She's a fellow writer, who has just self-published her first novel. Show her some love and visit her blog (after you read her awesome guest post, too)
I can't wait to see what everyone else has to share! To participate just write your post, and comment on this one, leaving the link to your blog so I can link you up! Without further ado....here's Amber LaShell!
Hello! In case you don't know me, My name is Amber LaShell and I run a little blog called AmberLaShell Rants over at amberlashell.com and even though it's hard for me to say this, I am a writer.
Isn't that wierd to say? When I think of a writer, I think of people like J.K. Rowling, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Nora Roberts. All people who make the New York Time's bestseller list, but being that I get paid to write, I am in fact a writer, even if I don't think of myself that way. In fact I have my first book up for sale right now and you can find all the information about it on my blog. (How's that for self-promotion?)
Now that you have a little background information, I can get to the Motivation part of Motivation Monday. I am working on a new book (will technically be my 2nd) and I need the motivation to work on it every single day. You see I have set a goal for myself to write at least 1,000 words every single day. That way I should be done with the first draft in a total of 2 months. This may sound easy, but is in fact quite hard and I need extra motivation for this. There are days when I don't want to write at all, but when I sit down and make myself, these end up being days I get the most done!
If you are interested in how I do everyday, word count wise, run on over to Twitter and follow me, I keep my followers informed! My twitter name is @amberlashell and I need everyone to kick my butt and tell me to get writing and get off twitter! Besides, it's what all the cool kids are doing. I would like to thank Nain for letting me take over her blog for a day, and I promise to clean up after myself.
