The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – June 22

2021 Daily Writing Challenge Q2

Monday hit me with a sledgehammer. The 9 to 5 bled every ounce of patience from my being as I sat in an endless string of meetings. I pushed agendas forward, keep participants on topic, fostered problem-solving on the fly, supported alternate solutions to problems, cut off long-winded tangents, redirected the group’s focus towards reaching our goal, and encouraged everyone. Hoorah. Then I started my actual work.

Work progresses on the house project list. The boards, cleats, and trim pieces for the linen closet have been cut to size and sport a white primer coat. The contractor refinishing the stairs reached the stage where he stained the risers and treads and achieved a phenomenal match to the original spindles and banister. I have windows and doors open and fans running to dispel the fumes and hasten drying times. My bed is calling my name and reminding me I need a good night’s sleep before I can tackle tomorrow’s schedule.

Even with the hustle and bustle, I didn’t forget my number one priority. My habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Yesterday I wrote 208 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.

  1. I did write yesterday, Jo. In fact, I finished the short story challenge from Team Writer. The assignment was 3,000 words but I finished the first draft at 11,000. HA!
    Now for the editing… and figuring out the genre.
    You inspire me everyday!

    • Wow, Nancy. You really took your short story to the next level. Congratulations. 👍 I started Kate’s short story challenge and then got side-tracked by too many things. Good luck with your editing, and I can’t wait to find out what genre you decide on. 💕📚
