A Dollar An Hour


A writer friend and I met last night to motivate each other. We decided to work through the book Bang the Keys by Jill Dearman together. Brainstorming creative ways to find writing time, we came up with a few that are so simple I had to share them. For each hour we spend a week, we are going to put a dollar in a jar. Every week we are going to check in with each other to make sure the action plans are progressing. The best part? There is a highly regarded writing conference here each fall. If we start now, there will be almost exactly enough dollars in our jar to pay for it! That sparked us to get going. What things do you find help you move towards your goals?

Committed to a life of purpose. Learning to live abundantly. Embracing creativity. Questioning. Delighting in the comforts of home and family. Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be. Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time. Psalm 89:11a“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”
