22-Minute Writing Sprint With Walt Jaschek

Overcome procrastination and writers’ block! In a new timed-writing video, writer Walt Jaschek prompts you to join him as he writes uninterrupted for 22 minutes.

Is there something you need to write? Are you in avoidance mode? Would a timed, 22-minute deep dive move something along? And would watching Walt write at the same time help you sit still and just do it? You’ve come to the “write” place.

Writer Walt Jaschek is the founder of Walt Now Studios, the intellectual property launchpad, and spends most of his creative time writing. He believes you can write many things with 22 minutes of focus: see list below.

Gather your notes, collect your research, put down your phone, click this new YouTube video, and sit quietly and write with Walt. As you’ll see, he will ask Alexa to start a timer for 22 minutes, and off you will go. Click video to begin and enlarge to your screen.

It works!

• A good chunk of a non-fiction article, or at least a strong lede

• A great chunk of a brochure or collateral material

• A plan of action

• The outline of an essay

• A really terrific shopping list

Why 22 minutes, and not say, 20 minutes? Well, Walt loves double digits, and though 20-minute writing sprints are common among authors, he’s always felt those extra two minutes allowed for some breathing room.

Bonus tip: if you need more time than 22 minutes, just rewind the video and start back at the beginning. Watch it early and often. The point is not just to start something, of course. It’s to finish something.

So let’s begin, shall we? Ready, get set…
