Prompt: Foregoing the prompt to check in – we are midway through #JanuaryJumpstart2023!


Hello, Readers and Writers –

We are roughly half way through the month and half way through our prompts – how is it going? Myself, I lost the plot the last few days but I’m getting back on track. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, so don’t feel badly if you have missed some days or you’re just joining in now!

Some tips for the second half

  • Lean on the prompts! No need to be creative when there’s a daily prompt!
  • Don’t stress about length or word count. Longer posts are not necessarily better posts.
  • Use what you have learned so far – does writing everyday at the same time help you write consistently? Do you work well under pressure, or do you thrive when you plan everything out and stay ahead of it?
  • Don’t be hard on yourself! Missed days happen!

This post is part of January Jumpstart 2023, a community writing project designed to help you get a jumpstart on a new year of writing. Want to join in or get more info?
