The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – February 4


Wednesday was hump day, and it felt like a mountain. Attaining any summit requires setting up a stellar base camp. Logistics, details, staging, and a handful of specialized, highly trained, altitude acclimated Sherpas help set the stage for success. It doesn’t seem very impressive. Tent flaps snap in the gale force winds the locals call a breeze. Fog and snow obscure the frantic activity involved in ensuring everything is in order. Then the tempo settles down. Everyone waits, preparing for the deep inhalation of oxygen required a split second before the conductor gives the signal. It’s showtime.

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 404 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.
