I found a fun website that combines writing motivation and kittens. I couldn’t resist filming a quick video to share it with you. I came across the website, written kitten while searching for tangible writing rewards to help writers stay motivated.
I admit this isn’t exactly what I was looking for but it served its purpose. It motivated me to write. The moment I stumbled onto it I jumped in and started writing and earned myself a couple of cute kittens.
Of course, they weren’t real kittens but the next best thing, adorable kitten photos! The website is simple to use. Just set a word writing goal for yourself, type into the provided text box, and get rewarded with kitten photos when you hit your goal. You can select 100, 200, 500, or 1000 word goals. The kitten photos are pulled from flicker.
Not a kitten fan? No worries, you can select puppies or bunnies for your reward. Yes, this is a simple concept but if it helps you write it is certainly worth its weight in kittens. The best part? This is completely free. You write words, get kittens, and make progress on your writing.
When I was finished earning kittens, I simply cut, copied, and pasted my writing into my Scrivener file. Unfortunately, you can’t take the kittens with you but you can come back anytime and write for more kittens. I recommend this website if you enjoy baby animal photos and enjoy setting small goals with instant rewards. I doubt I will be using this daily but it is a fun way to mix up your writing routine and rewards.
So, how about you? Do you love kittens, bunnies, or puppies? Have you tried written kitten? Did it work for you? Do you have any writing motivation tips to share? Let me know!
