The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – January 9


Exhaustion is difficult to overcome, especially when others rely on you for their wellbeing. You can’t just ignore the day job, forgo feeding the family, or let the trash overflow the bin. Well, I suppose you could, but the consequences are not pretty. Besides, the noise emanating from hungry mouths makes sleeping next to impossible. Being and doing everything for everyone backfires when you possess the energy of a floppy rag doll. Lockdowns and social distancing have made asking for outside help more challenging than it once was. The number of items on my schedule marked “no” is growing, so I can direct my focus to the important stuff. Tonight, we are ordering pizza.

Regardless of energy levels, the item sitting at the top of my list is non-negotiable. Yesterday I wrote 413 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.
