The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – January 8


Friday never looked so good. The first Thursday after holiday break feels like it should already be Friday. Nearly there, but not quite. Exhaustion creeps in. The to-do list, while shorter, still seems too long, and I miss my casual holiday afternoons.

My mind floats to my favorite holiday activity where I sit before my blazing fireplace, snuggled in my comfortable leather chair with a thick, engaging book, and a glass of wine while I contemplate a nap. One more day of agony, hard work, commitment, and determination, before I attain my reward of an equally busy weekend. Maybe I will reschedule a few tasks, sleep late, and catch my breath.

Regardless of how tired I am, the item sitting at the top of my list is non-negotiable. Yesterday I wrote 383 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.
