The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – January 17


Saturday arrived not a moment too soon. I usually keep my Saturday schedules light and focus on mopping up the week’s mess. This week was busier than expected, and I had packed every spare moment with the tasks required to meet impending deadlines. The overflow meant I needed to fill my day with previously delayed errands, postponed cleaning, along with the usual weekend chores.

I prepared for the daunting expectations inherent in my extra-long list by permitting myself to sleep two more hours. It almost worked. My internal clock recognized something wasn’t quite right and nudged me awake before the alarm sounded. But I am stubborn, and after peeking to determine the actual time, I squeezed my eyes shut and remained in bed until I heard the buzzer. I hauled my butt out of bed, and I was off and running.

No matter how demanding my life becomes, I maintain the item at the top of my list as a non-negotiable. Yesterday I wrote 329 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.
