Join us for a month of writing!
So, as you already know, it's day 10. Nine days of writing complete and twenty-one more days of writing to share. And then there is today. Day 10.
This is year four of the challenge for me and I'm not feeling the pressure or stresses of having to write daily. Actually, I'm enjoying the process of reflecting on my day, scrounging up my notebook or loose sticky notes, and writing in the moment. I always have a few ideas in my back pocket. There is always one story that speaks louder to me to share.
Today is one of those days. I have a couple of thoughts and ideas floating in my head: special early lunch, silly skyping girls (my mom wrote about this today!), Plant a Kiss, sunshine and fresh air. However, nothing grabbed me today. But I know I will still write without concern. I'm not at the point of endlessly tapping my keyboard with empty thoughts. I'm not yet writing a post about not knowing what to write about. I'm not even close to giving up. So, what did I do instead?
First, I decided to read my three previous years posts on day 10 thinking an idea would spark. I read about the quiet and LOUD moments at my house. I reminisced about my three words. And I laughed about my new writing love. It's quite fun to go back and reread old posts.
Then I hopped over to my SOLSC: Mentor Slices and Ideas Pinterest page. I skimmed the titles and authors and I smiled remembering why I saved these special slices. Then I remembered my "Writing Inspiration" Pinterest page that is full of quotes and writing ideas. I thought about writing to "currently. . . " and before I could share about anything currently happening, this is what transpired instead.
One of my "you will" suggestions was to reflect on your writing throughout the month. Day 10 seemed to be a good day for me to reflect.
How are you feeling on day 10? What are you noticing about your writing? What is surprising about your writing? What challenges are you facing?
