The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – January 14


Yesterday I woke with a migraine and a long to-do list. My prescribed course of action involved brewing a pot of fully caffeinated coffee and getting to work. A pounding head, intermittent blurred vision, and extreme light sensitivity can contribute to a challenging work environment. Each hour was a struggle, and I considered throwing in the towel countless times. I’ve discovered it is easy to give in and allow yourself a pass when obstacles rear their ugly heads. The more difficult task is continuing your work. Those days you do your best and hope tomorrow presents better options.

Regardless of how I feel, I keep the one item at the top of my list a non-negotiable. Yesterday I wrote 410 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.
