The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – February 1


After a busy Staycation week, yesterday, I slept. Muscles left sore and throbbing from hours spent shoveling snow demanded sleep. I slept more soundly than the dead. I didn’t wake fresh as a daisy, ready to tackle any problem, leap tall building, or run faster than a speeding bullet. I wasn’t signing up to fight dragons or tilt at windmills, but I felt different. Not all changes register seismic shifts on the Richter scale. I believe we fell some like a brush of wind on a pleasant spring afternoon that almost imperceptibly nudges us a half a step north. One minor adjustment might make all the difference.

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 436 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.

  1. Yes, I wrote. I’m trying to set aside time every 2 or 3 days to write. I’m having a lot of fun with it recently as I’ve decided to write from prompts. Whatever subject (sometimes just a word) comes to mind, and I head off where ever it takes me. It’s like staying in shape, although I don’t know what I’m training for.
