When I hit publish on this post, I will have written every day for 31 days. It was quite a challenge. I wanted to give up a bunch of times and there were times when I probably should have just quit rather than posting a crappy post. But I learned a lot, even from those crappy posts.
Next time, I will plan ahead and pick a topic that I actually like. Organizing is not and never will be my thing. And while I know that being organized is important, it doesn’t get me excited and it shows in my writing.
I confirmed that my desire to finish a challenge is enough to get me to finish a challenge. There was no outside force telling me I HAD to write for 31 days straight. It was self imposed discipline that made me write everyday. Exercise is the cryptonite to the superpower that is self imposed discipline.
It is better to have 3 strong posts a week than 5 posts that are mediocre.
When I’m really tired, my spelling gets really bad. Grammar, too.
I don’t know if I will take on this challenge next year. If I do, I was thinking of something that would involve photography. I follow a blog, Leaf and Twig where the author posts a picture and short poem about the picture every day. I look forward to that post every day. That would be a fun challenge!
