The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – July 29

2021 Daily Writing Challenge Q2

Yesterday we returned to our regularly scheduled insanity. After the online summit ended, I discovered copious notes on things I need and want to do, but I had no idea how to proceed. So, I did what any self-respecting procrastinator would do, and I tabled my notes. I have not forgotten about them. I firmly assigned the thought process, idea generation, and the brilliant plan conception phase to my subconscious. We have a mandatory meeting scheduled for Saturday.

Then I directed my full attention to getting caught up on my writing course. I made good progress, finishing two modules, including the required exercises. I started work on a third module. But my brain turned into mush before I finished all the work. Completing the assignment will be a breeze when I am fresh.

I always remember my number one writing priority. My core habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Yesterday I wrote 575 countable words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.

  1. The subconscious is a remarkable thing. I’m working on a picture book about a boy and butterflies. I’m a little bit stuck, but have been “thinking” about it. Yesterday, I was going through a copy of Garden & Gun Magazine, do you know it? Not like it sounds, it’s really a Town & Country Magazine for the South (food, wineries, vacation info, etc.) – REALLY NICE. I don’t know much about the South, so fun to go through it. ANYHOW, as I am going through one of the issues, there were two beautiful pictures of Monarch Butterflies in Mexico. The article talked about the migration to Texas and further in North America. SO… I THOUGHT THIS WAS A SIGN. I cut out the pictures of the butterflies and now have renewed energy to complete my story. One day soon, you’ll be back at your notes…

    • Isn’t it interesting how when we start working with a topic, an image, etc, we begin to see references to the idea everywhere we look? I just had that happen with the author Haruki Murakami. A friend mentioned one of his books, and now his name is showing up everywhere I look. I can’t wait to hear more about your book.👍💕

  2. Thinking is an important part of the creative process, I should know, for I do an awful lot of it!
    I started the course yesterday, Jo. The instructions were a little weird but I didn’t find it difficult. It became a little confusing when I moved on to the next stage. Daniel doesn’t mention if the same rule applies, (one syllable words) so not sure how to continue. Help!
