Day 1: May Poles

It’s the first of the month which means: tiny beetle steps to getting where we want to go.

I know big hairy goals freak some people out (including me).

So let’s set a couple of reasonable ones—and then figure out the tiny beetle step we can take to get there.

  1. What would make April a win for you?
  2. What would you like to achieve in your writing?
  3. Now, what’s the first tiniest beetle step you could take to get there? The smallest possible thing you could do?

Set a timer for 5 minutes, and see if you can map out the steps to delight.

And if you want to do this not alone, with a group of awesome writers and humans, come and join us in Team Moxie right here. You can try it out for a week for just £1.20.

Happy writing!
