“Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins. You do not sit down and write every day to force the Muse to show up. You get into the habit of writing every day so that when she shows up, you have the maximum chance of catching her, bashing her on the head, and squeezing every last drop out of that bitch.” – Lili St. Crow
This weeks link is not so much a writing resource as it is a life resource. It is a habit building app/site that “gamifies” your life.
I first heard about this when my local library hosted a writers conference last month and author Jim C. Hines mentioned it in relation to getting in his daily word count.
The idea is to create a list of habits and to-do’s. Get them done and you click them off to earn points. Get enough points to get gold and you move up levels and earn rewards. Move up enough levels, the rewards get bigger. Not interested in arming your avatar, create your own list of rewards and how much gold they are worth to you.
Don’t do the tasks and you lose health points. Lose too much health and your character dies.
I listed posting on this blog as one of my habits and you can see how well I’ve done, so far. They say it takes 21 times to make a habit.
May the Muse be with you.
