Good Morning! (Morning People Pt. 1)

Good Morning! Today is the first day of my Morning People writing challenge. The one and only rule for this month’s challenge is to write a blog post before noon. Now, because I am a realist, I understand that there may be some days where this is not possible, but I will try to write… Continue reading Good Morning! (Morning People Pt. 1)

The Sniffles (Writing is Hard Pt. 29)

Today is Day 29 of my 30-day writing challenge and I only have one day left! Today I am coming to you on the brink of a cold or a severe allergy attack; either way, I’ve been sneezing, sniffling and exhausted all day. I’ve been gulping down a gross, fizzy Airborne drink and eating Vitamin… Continue reading The Sniffles (Writing is Hard Pt. 29)

The Reasons Why I Write (Writing is Hard Pt. 28)

Today is Day 28 of my 30-day writing challenge and I’m cutting it pretty close (only 56 minutes left in the day!). Today (or, more accurately, tonight) I would like to focus on the reasons why I write, the reasons why I’m spending my time hunched over a screen instead of relaxing (or sleeping) right… Continue reading The Reasons Why I Write (Writing is Hard Pt. 28)

Writing Fears (Writing is Hard Pt. 27)

Today is Day 27 of my 30-day writing challenge and I’m so close to finishing that I’m afraid of jinxing it! I originally thought of the idea for this challenge while writing my first blog of the series, Writing is Hard.

Morning People (Writing is Hard Pt. 26)

Today is Day 26 of my 30-day writing challenge. I only have a few days left of this challenge, but I do not want to lose momentum. I’ve noticed that I respond well to the short-term goals, rather than the daunting vague, long-term. I like that this is a short, 30-day challenge. I have a… Continue reading Morning People (Writing is Hard Pt. 26)

Remembering Forgotten Stories (Writing is Hard Pt. 24)

Today is Day 24 of my 30-day writing challenge. Before starting this challenge, I had started and stopped a lot of different writing projects. Some of them are stored in some forgotten folder on my laptop; others are scribbled in some repurposed notebook; some are still lingering around in my head. While looking through the… Continue reading Remembering Forgotten Stories (Writing is Hard Pt. 24)

Bicycles and Baseball (Writing is Hard Pt. 23)

Today is Day 23 of my 30-day writing challenge – only one week left! Today I decided to write about a family photo from what seems like another life… There are fingerprints and small scratches on the surface of the photo, and although they do not hinder the view, they do emphasize how much time… Continue reading Bicycles and Baseball (Writing is Hard Pt. 23)

Looking Ahead (Writing is Hard Pt. 22)

Today is Day 22 of my 30-day writing challenge – almost finished! I began this self-appointed writing challenge because I had writer’s block and couldn’t seem to think, or write, myself out of it. I have many books on writing that provide many different kinds of writing exercises, but I always found myself flipping through,… Continue reading Looking Ahead (Writing is Hard Pt. 22)
