What Can You Do With 10 Minutes?

There is magic in a 10-minute constraint.

Entire novels have been written in 10-minute spurts. I know writers whose daily goal is to write at least 10 minutes no matter what. Some even have special notebooks for this purpose.

It is a small enough amount of time to easily commit to and add to a full schedule.

In my personal daily writing practice, I write ten minutes to the Sarah Selecky prompt. I have been doing this for years. It keeps me writing and a component of what makes me successful.

Over the past few years, I have written several times about the magic of ten! You can read a sampling here:

Ten Minutes of Truth on Medium.

A Love Letter to Ten on my blog.

Self Care for Writers on The Writing Cooperative

Time to Fuel!

We are now in the second half of 2022 and it is the perfect time to reignite your creative practice. I invite you to commit for 10 minutes for 10 days to change your creative life!

This challenge is for people who agree to create for 10 minutes for 10 days. You can write a poem, a piece of flash, or memoir. Your writing won’t be judged. You can create a drawing, a collage, or use another medium as well.

If you subscribe at the $5 level on my Substack newsletter, you will receive a daily inspiration email with a quote, a prompt, or something to inspire your creativity starting July 22. If you are part of PUSH you will automatically receive the inspiration.

This challenge will run from July 22-31, 2022


If the challenge appeals to you PUSH group may be the right fit for you too!

What is a PUSH group? It is Conversation, Community, Writing

PUSH groups are the heartbeat of my community space.

Our weekly meetings are Mondays @ 7 p.m. Central time. Meetings generally last an hour.

Each meeting focuses on curiosity and wonder. We share wins and experiences, write together, laugh, and open each other to new ideas.

To make it easier, you sign up for a year of PUSH at the inaugural rate by using the subscription option through Substack.
