The Experiment of WOTE

WOTE = Write One Thing Everyday.

A writing experiment for myself (aside from the whole nanowrimo thing lol) writing one thing everyday means to handwrite something. Write in a journal/notebook/, on a napkin, envelope, back of your hand…etc.

I found myself losing focus while writing. My mind skipping ahead to chapter two even though I was still typing chapter one. So I thought I’d try something to help me slow and just breathe for a minute before writing.

Here’s what I’m doing:

1. Getting back morning Meditations and a kind of meditating through movement in the afternoons.

2. Easing back on the coffee.

3. Walking more outside, not on a treadmill.

4. Writing in a journal before slamming away on the keyboard.

Simple things that so far have been good for me. I’ve only been at it for about three days (not counting the weekend because I’m only doing this M-F) though so it’s probably too early on to decide anything definite. lol

Now if I can only get the one thing to be about the nanowrimo work in progress…….

What method do you use for focusing?
