The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – August 3

2021 Daily Writing Challenge Q2

Yesterday I delivered a big, honking goose egg. Yep, that’s right. I didn’t write a single word. Beyond that, I didn’t DO anything. To say I had an off day is an understatement. My body forgot how to function, and my brain refused to process information. Access to your Will Power — Denied. All Motivational Systems — Currently Off-Line. The Well of Inspiration — Temporarily Closed for Renovations. Sorry, we are experiencing difficulties with the Sustained Concentration App. Please try again later.

I did what any self-respecting couch potato would do-I turned on Netflix. I lounged. I turned off my phone and tuned out the world. I didn’t even bother to eat since it would require me to leave my comfortable cocoon, open the fridge, and throw something into the microwave. It was entirely too much effort.

Today, I suppose I could have gotten mad, beat myself up, and doubled down on my list. Instead, I wrote it off as one of those things that happen for an inexplicable and fortuitous reason only the universe understands. I accepted the gift with grace. Everything will happen, but it just didn’t happen yesterday.

I always remember my number one writing priority. My core habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Even if yesterday, I wrote 0 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.

  1. I guess I could say I had a similar day, although I did manage to work on my book. Not necessarily writing words, more like editing and adding images to each Chapter.
    Can’t wait to wrap this up so I can move on to other projects.
    Stay well and I hope today’s a better writing day for you.
