The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – January 31


Yesterday marked the end of our Staycation and the transition back to normal, daily, prescribed work routines. Outside, snow is falling, plows are clearing streets and sidewalks, and my neighbors scrape their driveways. I will join them soon. We may work at home, but there are still errands to run, places to go, promises to keep. A vacation in whatever form is an excellent opportunity to break expectations and place demands on hold. We can indulge in activities too often postponed or deemed unimportant in the bigger overall picture. The process lets us push pause on the incessant merry-go-round, see the world from a fresh perspective, and reconsider our true priorities. We shuffle the deck, ante up, and deal ourselves brand new cards.

No matter the challenges and the obstacles blocking my way, I maintain the item at the top of my list as a non-negotiable. Yesterday I wrote 456 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.
