2020 Daily Writing Challenge: August 3
For my writing challenge, I am going to be working with daily prompts from the book “The Daily Writer: 365 Meditations to Cultivate a Productive and Meaningful Writing Life.”
So, today is: Acting upon Resolutions, meaning my resolution to write something every day, and by doing so, improving my writing and increasing the amount I actually write.
Now, obviously this isn’t a New Year’s resolution. Or maybe it is – it kind of feels like a new year given the current 2020 circumstances. Although I guess we still don’t know if or when this pandemic will subside, or if it will take off again over the next few weeks. I do know work, which begins for me again tomorrow…sigh…, will be crazy given most of our courses are moving online for the Fall, and I am not convinced most instructors really know what that means.
But, I digress. My resolution/goal for the month of August is to write more, and write more coherently, and write more words, and while I continue to do my morning pages and journal, I need some accountability for my writing, which is why I am writing here for all of you to read.
Finding space and time is not a problem. The problem is making the time and sticking to it. Even when things are in my calendar, unless they are connected to events involving others, I am not the most consistent with task mastery. Maybe this time will be different (hope I didn’t just jinx it by saying that). It’s really just up to me. One day, one week, one month at a time and we will see. Can’t do any more than that!
And now, here is a picture of a kitten to send you on your way.
