Monday Mojo

     Happy Monday!   Jakki here with your weekly dose of writing inspiration!  Well I’m going to try to inspire you anyway, so stop waiting on that Muse and bookmark this site.   Then each week we will meet here to chase away writer’s block with a mojo inducing tip, prompt or worksheet.  Monday’s are all about creativity, so feel free to share ideas in the comment section below.  I can’t wait to read them!  We are going to inspire each other.

     I want to say a little about Camp NaNoWriMo before I get to the writing inspiration.  Camp NaNoWriMo is a virtual writing camp and happens every year in April and July.   Each camper can start a virtual cabin with friends or be assigned to one based on the type novel you are writing.  When you join, (for free), you set up a profile for yourself including information on your novel and yourself.  Then you set a total word count goal for the month, that’s between 30,000 and 100,000 words.  The camp will give you a daily word count goal that if met will get your total word goal by July 31st. There are graphs on your profile detailing your progress and inspiring emails from the administrators .   The cabins are great because you have an instant support group for your writing.   I’m signed up and am going to try my best to reach my goal.   July 1st is the first day so you still have time to join.

     Now, let’s get that creative mojo flowing.  Look at the picture below. Imagine it is a scene in your novel.  In the comments write the first line of this scene.   I’m going to participate too, so look for my one line.   And how about letting me know if you will participating in Camp NaNoWriMo. Maybe we can share a cabin.

  1. Whew! This is a tough one, but I’ll give it a shot:

    The crowd stood in watchful silence as Lt. Jefferies knelt down to present Micah the flag. There were no words, but Jefferies tried to say something that would bring comfort to the young man. He spoke sincerely, about how Micah’s father had been a hero; how he’d always had his men’s backs. Micah had remained stoic throughout the proceedings, but at the word “hero,” a single tear had slid down his cheek, and everyone present was wrecked.

    Okay – so that’s more than one line. Am I disqualified? LOL
