The Spring and Summer Bucket List for Writers (Free Printable!)

The Writing Days / The Spring and Summer Bucket List for Writers (Free Printable!)Hi guys and my sincerest apologies for the long absence! I’ve been so busy with everything else that I had to drop something for a while. I’m feeling more energetic now, so hopefully I’ll be able to get back to posting several times a week. The lovely spring weather here in Finland is definitely helping.

Today I thought I’d do something different, so I made a printable you can download. It’s a spring and summer bucket list for writers with several writing prompts and activities you can do to inspire your writing during the warm months. Here it is!

If you use any of the prompts, let me know! It’d be lovely to read what different kinds of texts the same prompts can inspire. Also, share your summer activities on your blog and let me know how you keep yourself writing during the summer – always up for new ideas, I am. I’m also thinking about starting a summer writing competition on my Instagram, so if you have an account, follow @thewritingdays_blog on IG for more updates on that later.

Get writing!

Love,
Aino.

Camp NaNoWriMo has started!

Hi guys!

You might remember that I’m absolutely in love with National Novel Writing Month, and guess what? It’s April and Camp NaNoWriMo! This is just a quick update, because I’m desperately behind on my wordcount already and have to get back to writing.

Do you ever experience the problem of having too many ideas at once? I do right now. I have an idea for a play I’m writing for Camp this spring, but at the same time I’m thinking of other stories that want to get written, a dramatisation that still awaits the OK-go… My head is buzzing!

I guess this Camp I have to rebel a little and write several things at once. It’s a lucky situation to have all these ideas waiting to be realised, but at the same time I wish I had a driving passion to finish one thing before moving on to the next. Apparently that’s not how my mind works. I wish I understood myself more easily!

Learning to know myself,
Aino.
