Writers: “Show Up” by Getting a Writing Buddy

1cc30749b8df8b86f0ac773a9dfcb1baWoody Allen has said, “80% of success is just showing up.” And isn’t that true?

I’ve found a new, tried-and-true way to do that–and it really works.

I have a BFF, Yvonne, and we’ve established a standing date to show up online at a certain time every Wednesday. We check in on our Facebook chat, say “Hi,” and then go off and write. We check in every hour–not to critique, just to encourage each other:  “How’s it going?” I have to keep this date because I don’t want to disappoint her, and it sure makes it more fun.

This has helped me get more actual writing done than anything I’ve tried. I recommend it to every writer. Get a writing buddy to help you “show up”!
