Write Like a Motherfucker (on Facebook)

By

Are you trying to write today but feeling distracted/unmotivated/lonely? If so, perfect. We’re taking “Write Like a Motherfucker,” Dear Sugar’s #48 column one step beyond…

Misery loves writerly company, and we created the “Write Like a Motherf*ucker” Facebook page to offer extra support and/or a place to make a plan like, “let’s work for one hour and then check in.” Facebook can be something other than a wedding album sometimes, you know?

Check in with other writers who need to write like motherfuckers at any given time. Even if no one else is available at a particular time to write with you, state your intentions on this page, et voila, you are now accountable to the Write Like a Motherf*cker community at large. You don’t want to break a commitment like that–to so many people–do you? We didn’t think so.
