Name: Victoria Nugent

Age: 25

State: New South Wales

What is your NYWM goal?

I plan to take part in Pitch, Bitch each week, complete two short stories and attempt to revive a moribund blog.

What kind of writing do you do?

I’m a journalist by day. Outside of work hours I write everything from novel fragments and short stories to book reviews and freelance articles.

What inspires or motivates you to write and reach your goals?

Having an idea that I can’t wait to see completed gets me typing furiously. It’s almost like reading a book. I get eager to learn more about the characters and the story and that only happens the more I write.=

I am inspired by ideas I’m passionate about and therefore quite motivated to motivated. If I can rabbit on about an idea to someone for 10 minutes, there’s a strong chance I’ll be inspired to write about it.

Reaching just one goal fires me up to do even more. Even the tiniest success feels invigorating. Paying markets also help.
